When the nectar flow starts the bees ignore sugar syrup and forage for the nectar. If they have not drawn out all the foundations, be sure to move any undrawn foundations toward the middle of the box. Often they make a mess of the outside comb, or fail to draw the outside combs all of the way out if the flow tapers off. If they stop producing wax at the end of the flow, it takes a lot of sugar to get them started again to finish the combs.
