Re: I need patience I think?
A few tricks I've heard is to place one of the honeys up top(you can't because of deep) or spritz the frames with 1:1 syrup. I didn't do it for the first few boxes and it took 3 months to fill out 2 boxes(feeding the whole time). I spritzed the next box and it took 2 weeks to fill it out(still feeding). I have head from tons of people to feed until all frames are filled. I think of it as, they need nectar/syrup to make the wax, why not give them all the sugar they want to make the wax so they can put the nectar in it. I just want to make sure they get enough stored before winter. Started in Feb with a nuc and already have 3 meds almost full.
