I posted a while back about a hive that is strong but has oodles of drones hanging out on the honey supers...well mainly on the top honey super.

Yesterday I was checking for capped honey frames in the top supers for extraction. This hives top super was full of uncapped nectar. I then checked the lower super and found the same...wall to wall nectar and none capped.

Should I give them another super of recently extracted honey frames as these are filled or wait until they start capping?

Would this be related to so many sitting on, and likely feeding on, the open nectar.

This is the only hive I have come across with no capped honey in the supers. There does appear to be capped honey in their brood boxes.
