    Default Lazy bees

    First off just wanted to say hi been away from beekeeping for some 20 yrs. so I'm not totally green. Does anyone know why my Strongest hive I own 18 frames full of bees to he point of overflowing I added a shallow supper 10 frames not drawn out and there not interested at all. I didn't put a queen excluder and they still don't want anything to do with it. Does anyone have an idea why?

    When did you add the shallow? It's been pretty dearthy lately. Perhaps they didn't need it just yet.
    The question is what to do, and the answer, as always, is complicated by a muddle of reason, emotion, and doubt.

    Likely cos they got no nectar coming in.
