Reply To: No honey in supers – should I worry?


As Tim says, many variables! If it is 9 frames now then it sounds as if it was a fairly small colony at the start of the season which might be why they are as they are now with honey just downstairs. As long as there is food in the brood box then no problem. Is it new foundation in the super? Sometimes they can take a while to go up and draw that out and only do so when they have built up numbers and there is a good flow on.

Hopefully they will get out and about and fill your super with lovely summer honey. The ‘June gap’ is looking to be short lived. Certainly here in Long Compton there is plenty out in flower now. We just need the sunshine to return after a little rain! I hope that helps
