      For various reasons I haven’t been able to check my bees until 2 days ago, 8th April.
      So I shouldn’t have been surprised that they had started to build honey comb above the crown board.
      I put queen excluders and supers on all and hopefully they will now take the honey down fron the crown board and store it in the supers. Probably not necessary but I did cut the comb from the board and just lay it down on top of the board.
      All extra work for the bees though, and I could have saved them the job by supering earlier.
      Took a photo but not sure how to or if I can upload a photo to the forum?
