Alan's Bee Chronicles - Bees & Wax

What is happening: I went into my "Swarm hive" and noticed the entire upper box was filled with honey (no brood) so I checked the bottom box and identified eggs which meant the queen was laying.

What I am doing: I decided to remove 4 center frames of honey and put in undrawn foundation to give them a chance to build it out so the queen can lay eggs in the upper chamber. (I am saving the 4 frames of honey for winter feed for bees.) As the nectar flow is mostly over I needed to put in a feeder so they could draw out the comb but did not have time to install and feed. One week later I checked and they had already drawn out all 4 frames of undrawn foundation.What is happening: I went into my "Swarm hive" and noticed the entire upper box was filled with honey (no brood) so I checked the bottom box and identified eggs which meant the queen was laying.
