Re: After a week, the bees grew comb where I didn't want it and I removed it.
New comb should be place in a cool dry place. The shed may be too hot in the day and melted the fragile comb. If you
attach this comb back on a frame and place it in the center of the brood nest in the lower box then they will continue to draw
it out. You need to wire the frame though. A sturdy frame will make hive inspection much easier in the future.
Yes, agreed that it is too much space. Give them a box so that all effort is concentrating on drawing out the frames in the
first box before giving them a 2nd box. A box should never be empty unless you are feeding them inside the hive. Putting a
small net over the first box will eliminate the comb making issue. Are you feeding them syrup inside with the top box on?
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
