This is my first year with bees. I built all my hives from scratch.
I received 4 Lang Nucs (2 different suppliers) about 6 weeks ago. I placed the frames in a transfer box (like this: http://thumbs.webs.com/Members/viewT...7749&size=full) with a modified warre box below it.
The problem is the bees in all 4 hives are not building down at all.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?
