Construction slow down ( need advise)
I made some splits and added mated queens to two of them around July 1st and captured 2 swarms that have mated queens back from mating around July 8th, all 4 hives are doing well. My issue is, I don't see any continual progress in comb build out. I've checked for the past two weeks and they still only have about 5 frames built out as of today.
Some are in deeps and some are in mediums. I have been feeding 1 to 1 syrup the entire time thru the top inner cover vent area with a mason jar feeder, I only obstruct about half of the vent.
My question is, is this normal, should I be concerned yet and is there anything I should be doing?
