I'm looking for advice on how to get the beautiful virgin honey comb, nice and capped.
(I'm fairly new at this)
Started with Golden Mean plans. Too short (like you haven't heard that enough).
Built 4' hives. Queen still gets all the back to lay brood. Not huge amounts, but some. I tried to force an empty bar, then a bar of almost all honey, but that doesn't seem to bother her. It also seems like they never want to cap more than 50% of the bar which is no good getting some good comb honey.
I want to ask now, because it's starting to warm up and it won't be much longer til the bees start bringing stuff in. I figure now might be the time to try out suggestions from those with who know better.
On a side not, this is not for the purpose of sale. Just for experience and my own personal enjoyment.
