I am not sure what is still producing Nectar here in Ga, but in less than 2 weeks, my 1 and only hive in about 70% of the way drawning out the medium I added about 2 weeks ago. I just came back from there and I noticed they are working furiously. Currently they only have 1 deep and a medium for the brood chamber and bizzybee said thats about right for our climate. Last week I saw a couple of beetles for the very first time and to me that warranted an deep inspection> never saw them again, but never saw my queen either. Lots of eggs, larvae, so she was around, no biggie. Tonight she was in the upper medium. Now, I would have liked to pull a couple of frames in the lower deep, but since she was in the upper, I was a little skittish about taking the medium off so I could get down there. I was afraid of rolling her or something. Would you guys have done the same thing? as in left her in the medium and just closed it up? She hasn't begun to lay up top that I can see.......ANYONE???
