Heard a new theory last night, of feeding to allow bees to build cone then stop so they fill that cone with honey. Could it possibly work that way?
Do they build out all the cone first and then fill? I would like to see a couple of my hives get a full super before winter (we are still in the flow here but shorter days and cold nights) and they don't seem to be building out cone fast at all. One month after putting a empty super on they've done next to nothing. But I don't want them just filling it up with sugar water either?
Thoughts on feeding to help build the cone and then no feeding so they fill up with natural honey? thank!
