As I am new to beekeeping I have found this forum very helpful! Here in CT it appears the honey flow was going really well.. I had 1 hive fill a deep with brood and honey in about a week. A few questions though
1. One hive will not move up into the second deep.. not even draw wax out (plasticell frames). Although the bottom deep they are starting to draw off the bottoms and top of frames and join frames together with burr comb. I took empty frames from the top deep and switched them with some in the bottom deep. I have also sprayed down all empty frames with untreated sugar syrup. Is there anything additional I can do to get them moving onto new frames?
2. How are other CT/ New England beekeepers doing with honey flow and how long does it last? (this year has been unusually cool and rainy) My second hive also will not move onto new frames, although they have filled the 2 deeps, and a medium super is up next).
Thank you in advance for any information. This forum is a fantastic resource for beekeepers.. especially anyone new and it is greatly appreciated.
