Hello from Ireland
Hi, I am a new pee-keeper and also new to this site so please bear with me .
I have now one hive after I lost a hive last winter ( no decease ), the hive was two boxes in March this year and in good sunny day bees are flying happily in good numbers. I added a third box late March when I found the bees have had reached the outside frames. In May I checked the new box and it was full of honey and covered in bees. I left it as is and added a new box on top of a queen excluder, the forth box had 12 frames with wax sheets.
Inspected yesterday, there are bees on the frames but none has been drawn. Any advice why? I hoped it would be full of honey by now. What can I do to encourage the bees to draw the sheets?
