Ok, so to let you know what's up I reciently completed a beekeeping course. I just reciently (about 3 or 4 weeks ago) purchased my first set of bees. It was a nuc. There were two frames of brood included in the nuc. I then placed them in the center of a regular deep hive body of 10 blank frames, expecting them to fill them up with comb. I also placed a sugar syrup feeder above them, but after a week it was obvious they were foraging on their own and not using the feeder. Anyway, so after 4 weeks the bees really arn't building comb. They have started on one frame, and have maybe 10% of the frame filled on one side, and that's it. The problem is that they are starting to fill up some of the cells in the brood area with extra pollen and nectar. I need them to build comb faster so the queen can build up the hive well enough to make it through winter, which is located in Raleigh North Carolina. So does anyone know a way that I can get them to build comb faster?
