Has anyone ever experienced this? At least 50% of the two medium supers on one of my hives are crammed full of pollen; 4-5 frames each. The rest are full of capped honey. We have had a lot of rain over the past months and everything is blooming great and the flow is good too. Why would they be using the supers to store so much pollen? The brood chamber has 3-4 frames that have more than enough space. And as I recall they did this on the brood and empty super frames last fall. A ton of pollen. I don't understand it.....

I was at a four hive opening on sunday and the same thing was going on. We had to join one hive ith brood to the hive woth polein and caped and open honey. The pollen was of multiplr color. The funy thin was there was five queen cells. We were looking for the queen and found her she then flu away, so we had to do the split for two reasons. This was only one deep super for all four hives. I hope jean has better luck when she opens them back up next week. Bo
