Re: Nectar bound help, my fault
They don't brood up like Italians. If the bees don't raise brood they collect nectar if it is available. See how fast a queenless hive makes honey. If you look at honey production over all the Italian hive produces the most honey and is a gentle bee. That is why the Italian race of bees is most popular. Is it your fault because you didn't inspect or is it your fault because you feed a frugal race of bees?
