This past April I started two hives on HSC. I have read that the first couple of brood cycles don't do so well, but then the brood pattern should start to take on a more normal appearance. The bees have been in the hive about 90days now. The population has been really slow to build. The brood pattern is good sized, nearly covering a whole frame. in the middle of the hive and spanning 6 or 7 frames, however, it is really "spotty." At this point I'm not sure if I should give the queen another cyle or two, or if I should just pinch her and requeen. Any thoughts?
