    I have a similar problem with one hive. I believe its my sugar block dissolving because of the major moisture problem this hive has.

    Re: Only interested in one frame

    If you haven't already, I would add a 10th frame to that box. They will draw burr comb all over the place if the bee space isn't right.

    Re: Well, that went well.

    I know its hard, BUT I would give them a little more time to settle in. You will have brood if it was a nuc. She should have been already laying.
