You said honey, no sugar feeding, sounds perfect to me. I would put a frame of honey in middle of brood.
how about that.So far, I have to say that the Langstroth hives are easier than the top bars, and more productive than the Warre.
If you are needing more space in the brood nest which it sounds as if you may at this point, take a couple of the frames out of honey in the lower deep. Then bust up your brood nest with a couple empty frames. They will pull it out and use it for brood at this point. If you find any swarm cells you may want to remove more honey and extract and replace the empty frames instead to give the queen immediate room to brood up.I know that you can't really have too much can you. I am a 3rd year beekeeper, with past top bar and warre hives. I started 3 Langs this year from nucs. I installe them in the first part of April, and they have done great, much better than my other 2 hives. They filled the first level faster than I though they would, and I added another deep frame box when the first was almost full. The second is now full, and I have added a med super this past week. My question is this....After looking at the bottom box, I noticed that there are only 6-7 frames of brood, and 3-4 of honey. The second box is completely full of honey too. I think that I need more bees, and less honey, correct? Can I just take honey from the lowest box and replace it with an empty frame, will they fill it with honey, or make more brood. So far, I have to say that the Langstroth hives are easier than the top bars, and more productive than the Warre. Thanks for all the help.
