My first attempt
I got a nuc a week and a half ago. I have medium frames, and the nuc was regular frames. They told me to put it in the top box of two and let the bees draw out comb on the edges and then later lift it up and to the sides and out.
Well, I got courage enough to open up the hive today (no stings) and found that the bees were building comb (about the size of teacup saucers) at the bottoms of the regular sized frames. They weren't building into the sides much at all. Just combs hanging in thin air. The comb looked like pita bread. I didn't know what to do. What should I do?
Is that good. They weren't going up and they weren't really going out.
