I CBed a hive early march here in pa. They were at top of medium on top of deep over winter. I only had deeps w stores so i CBed two deeps over the cluster and added an empty drawn medium above that.
I checked them today and well, they moved! they moved up innto the top deep for some reason. There were some in the medium at the very top but the cluster skipped over an entire deep that is CBed. Now if CBing is dependant on expanding upward this would kill my CB in theory.
Well since i was in there i decided i knew best and i dropped the cluster back down to the bottom and put the deep they skipped back on top.
Question has anyone noted this behavior before? why would they move so far up? For more warmth maybe?
It was continued cold later than average here and im wondering maybe they ran out of stores and headed up and just went too far.
Or did they chose exactly where they wanted to be?
Just wondering if any have seen this.
