Re: New Bees
Follower Board, The easiest way to gt an idea of what one is is to look up top bar hives. but basically it is a false wall that is placed in the hive like it is a frame. it can be placed anywhere causing the interior space of the box to be reduced.
Interesting about the to much space effect. That might be what I am seeing in my hive. It has built like crazy going from a 5 fame nuc to a full 10 frame body in a couple of weeks. I added a second deep and they drew out the comb and filled it with brood in good time. but one the med super was added they seem to have stopped. not only do they pay no attention to the med but progress in the upper deep has slowed. I have been puzzling over this and now I wonder if they have not simply reached there limit on desired space for their population? If I should remove the med super and let them build up even more in the two deeps?
