Hello,

I installed a package on 4/20. My first hive. Things looked like they were going really well. About 10 days ago, I checked on the hive and it appeared they were ready for a super. About 80% was drawn out on new foundation.

I checked on them this past Friday and it doesn't appear they have started working the second super. Was I a little early in my guestimate or should I have put a frame or two from the first super in the second?

I read somewhere, maybe this forum, that the queen won't go above the honey line.

TIA

Move a frame or two of brood up in the center of your second box. They will move up to care for the brood and expand outward from there.
