I started my first TBH in the spring and bought an initial package in late March. After about 2 weeks, I purchased another package and subsequently split one hive once it almost outgrew the box. So now we have three seemingly healthy hives. I have all three boxes basically full of comb and brood. So far, no full bar production of capped honey has occured. The August hot weather in NC seems to have exhausted most of their stored honey, so I have begun feeding 1:1 sugar water in an attempt to help them build up some stored honey. I have not used the follower board, other than when I first introduced the new packages. Should I be doing anything different to encourage full bar honey production in the future? Right now my main focus has been to get them prepared to make it through the first winter. We've not expected any honey to harvest, but since I'm a novice, I thought I'd ask for any advise. Thanks for your help..
