    Black Foundation For Honey Supers

    I have 20 medium frames with black foundation.

    Can I use them in honey supers?

    I know people prefer the black in brood frames, does it matter in the honey super?

    May 20th my nuc swarmed out. Didn’t catch them.

    Re: Hive top Feeder Issues

    I went into my split hive today and a bunch of bees hatched and are busy at work sucking down sugar water from the feeder.

    I see some comb being worked on.

    All that worrying!

    Re: Help Identifying Frames

    Well the hive swarmed last Monday.

    I tried to keep them home, but no luck.

    Possible new foundation and they did not have the room the bees preferred.

    Missed the swarm so I couldn’t chase them

    1:1 sugar water

    Just checked again after cleaning it.

    It’s almost like there is bee repellent in there.

    Not a soul consuming fresh sugar water.

    I borrowed the feeder from a buddy.

    Re: Hive top Feeder Issues

    I’m trying to have the bees draw out new foundation.

    Will cleaning the feeder help?

    Worth a try.


    I’ll only fill it half way not to waste any syrup.
