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


Thanks for all the replies.

As Chris says, I think we got through the winter with quite a small colony and are still building up numbers. Yes, the supers are mainly new foundation, with a couple of frames of partly drawn comb from last year. So there is work for them to do before filling with stored honey.

I will continue inspecting through the ‘June gap’ to ensure they have enough stores, and then hope to see something in the supers in the summer.

Regarding health problems, I haven’t seen any anything, but I don’t think I would be able to identify Nosema. Let’s hope for the best on that front.

Thanks again,

Paul and Cindy
