my 4 hives are going good. 1&2 have 2 supers each and are nearly ready for a 3rd. #4 has 1 super and will get a 2nd this week.3 however is just sitting there, Both deeps are full with good brood and the super has bees all over it, just no necter! I even tried putting a different drawn super on it but the results are the same,lots of bees but no necter.
I dont know what is happening here.
All 4 hives are from new packages this year on drawn foundation, and are all within 20 ft. of each other.
Any ideas?

My experience with "store bought" queens is that 1/3 are great, 1/3 are okay and 1/3 are not so good. Some of the not so good queens just raise bees and don't store honey. Okay if you are selling nucs I guess, but not so good for selling honey.
