I placed an extracted comb back onto a hive about 1 week ago. I checked the hive today and noticed a few things that created a few questions.
1. The bees did a great job of cleaning out the comb and are storing more honey. The comb though is not drawn out evenly, it is wavy as to how I cut it. Will they ever draw the comb out further and make the comb even and flat again(I am using 9 frames in a 10 medium super)?
2. The bees are storing on all frames at a similar rate(all 9 frames) . Don't they usually work on one frame and then move to another?
3. Some of the cells(about 5) on each frame seem to be individually capped with what I am guessing is wax. It appeared though that all the other open cells are only partially filled with honey. Why are only a few single cells are capped?
