Bees in top box


Hi there,

I’ve got a new hive this year and the bees have just about filled the second box that I added to the bottom about a month ago. Ordered a new box to add in the next week or so but noticed today there are now tons of bees in that top empty box where I had a couple of ball jar feeders that sat on holes in a canvas clothe. Is that bad they are up in that top box now with no bars?


It’s definitely not good! I’d get bars in that box ASAP and ensure they’ve not built any comb up there. Or you could just move that empty box to the bottom as well (with bars!)
