Well I went into my stronger of two hives today and found I would assume what no beek wants to find -- queen cells on several frames at the bottom. I cleaned them off, but I would expect to find more on the bottom of the first brood deep. I am using two 8 frame deeps for brood and have a medium super for hopefully some honey. Well that seems far off now. I had put a queen excluder on when I added the hoeny super when the 2nd deep had between 5-6 frames drawn. I attended a local bee assoc. meeting and there learned that with new foundation (wax) that bees don't really like to go through the excluder to draw comb. So I removed the excluder, and had alot more bees in the super, but they have never seriously started to draw comb. I assume they are getting ready to swarm due to lack of room in the two deeps??? I have a great queen in this hive that lays like pictures one sees in books, but it looks like it all may end soon. Any idea(s) why the bees never went into the medium super if room was what they needed??? Any comments or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
