Back story- first time warre hive keepers. my husband built our warre boxes, frames and all. We ordered 2 nucs and he retrofitted both nuc boxes to sit on top of their own warre box in order to build straight down from the nuc into a warre box. It’s been just over a month and I don’t see anything happening. We are in South Carolina, so I’m more than sure that we are in a good nectar flow. I’m at the point that I’m second-guessing some of our decisions
here are some of the things I question.
-We ran a bead of wax on the frames- i’m worried that we should have provided a strip.
-We did nothing to the interior of the boxes, made from old oak boards.
- We did not secure the frames know or did we make sure they were perfectly spaced apart.
I guess my question is should I worry? Or is this all within “normal”
Any kind of comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you! And I’ve enjoyed browsing for this forum!
