Empty Med between two deep bodies
I recently added a med super to my two deep body hive. Hive is doing well but is not paying any attention to the med super.
I have thought of a couple of resons this might. be
I added it a bit to early and the bees simply are not done working on the second deep.
I also read that adding space to fast may actually slow down the bees down. in short that to much space they cannot control which has negative effect on the colony growth.
I also have noticed that bees are more reluctant to move in and start working any space placed around the area they already have. But will quickly fill in any empty space that is placed in there area. I am nto sure that explains it well but that is not important.
My son and I checked the before mentioned med last night and we where talking about why it might be that it is getting ignored. He asked me about placing the med super between the lower and upper deep. Keep in mind both deeps have brood. I told him I had no idea what might happen but I woudl ask on this group.
Has anyone tried this? does it work or not etc. Basically what woudl be the results as best as you could guess, have seen etc.
