Have a hive started from a nuc July 1st. What would be considered a normal amount of brood? Have been feeding 1.1 syrup all the time till last Friday when we discovered they are starting to backfill. Stopped feeding.
This is a double deep hive.
The real question here is what would be a normal amount of brood for this hive if they weren't backfilling?
We are in a drought and a dearth in our area in south central Ohio.
