Nectar bound help, my fault
It will be another month or so before we enter the real Fall here. There are some natural nectar and pollen
flow outside. I got a bit hasty seeing that the hives do not have enough honey stores. So I fed them for almost 2
weeks on honey-syrup mixture. Now the hive is back filling up the brood nest. My fault for not inspecting them last week not
knowing that they had filled up so fast. I'm hoping to get one more round of young bees before going into the winter here as they are low
on young bees now. I do not have enough empty comb for them to fill anymore. These Cordovan are as advertised, low consumption and fast
honey maker. They are on 6 frame nucs right now.
What is the best solution to my situation when I want the queens to lay some more? Any workable suggestions appreciated.
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
