Honey from 1st year hive question
Wasn't sure how to word the title and this is probably a no-brainer but humour me.
While going through our inventory of supers and frames I saw some frames of drawn comb and got to thinking.
First year bees spend a lot of resources on drawing new comb.
Theoretically, say I give a split or a package 20 deep frames of drawn comb to start.
Would I have a better chance of harvesting honey from them that same Spring than your typical new colony just starting out?
I would think yes.
A med super with new foundation could probably be added at the same time.
Can't wait for Spring...
