I checked my one year old hive with 2 deep 10 frame super brood chambers and here is what I found. The queen was in the top super with brood and honey and only 5 frames built out. The bottom super was all honey with about 4 full frames built out. I have been feeding pollen patties through winter and just put in a new one and feeding 1:1 sugar water for about 3 weeks. I reversed the brood supers, now the queen is on the bottom. Is this normal for this time of year in New England? or should there be more brood? This hive swarmed on me last July and I recaptured and put them back They survived winter as I did not take any honey from them last year. Now what?
I need some advice.
