Hi, I’ve got 2 hives that I removed Varroa strips a week ago. Both have 1 honey super on (from old drawn comb) and the girls are filling it fast and have started capping frames. I want to add a second super but only have new foundation, no old comb. I was going to move a couple of frames up into the new Super to help the bees move up. Should I just let them get on with drawing out the foundation or would a feed promote them drawing the foundation? My worry in doing this is that that the syrup will end up in the honey frames. thanks in advance!
Hi there, first of all, I am a newbee to this forum and it's great to be here :-) I would like to know how much kg of wax bees need to produce to draw out FD, 3/4 and HD wax foundation in supers. Would anyone of you be able to give me an informed estimate please? Basically I am after the weight of a blank 10 frame super with undrawn foundation vs. the weight of that same super after extraction and cleaning by the bees (i.e. no residual honey). Many thanks and keep up the great work, Nils
