Re: Correcting a Honey Bound Brood Box, Langstroth Hive
HC, in a normal hive without an excluder they will put the honey on top.
Now that the excluder is off the hive should be back to normal again. What
is important now is for the hive to expand in preparation for the cold winter months.
Move all the honey frames up in another super. Then add more drawn comb for the
queen to lay in the lower box. If they continue to fill up the cells in the bottom box then
consider extracting the honey to free up more space. Adding another super on top should
allow them to deposit more nectar.
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
