      Hi

      We have a brood and a half hive and when we looked in there are virtually no stores or brood in the brood box but lots of brood and stores in the half and plenty of honey in the supers.  The Queen doesn’t seem to like it ‘downstairs’. We wondered if it’s maybe the wax – in the brood box it is quite dark now whereas in the super it’s very clean.  Any thoughts welcome. Thank you.

      • It does seem as if you need to replace that brood box and old comb.
      • If you have one or two frames of freshly drawn comb that would help.
      • You could place it above the brood for a while to get it started. But they will then put stores there.
