A hive that I split last year went into winter with one deep, and one medium super. I wanted to get a second deep drawn out with comb before the flow started, but the queen had started laying eggs in the medium, so I left it on. I fed 1:1 sugar syrup to help them draw it out, but they seem to be storing it in the honey super instead of using it to build comb. I don't think this would qualify as honey when I go to extract it, so how do I get the bees to remove it from the honey supers so they are empty to store honey in them? Also, should you feed 1:1 if there is cold weather so they will start to draw comb in the honey supers until the nectar flow is in high gear?
