Two of my double deep hives were ready four weeks ago for supers. I placed one medium super on each hive using a queen excluder on both. After two weeks I noticed no drawing activity. So, I removed the excluders and to my delight, the bees starting working like gangbusters. In less than two weeks, today, I found both mediums with uncapped honey. One medium is 40% drawn with uncapped honey and the second is 60% drawn with uncapped honey. The second one is the one I placed empty frames every other frame location. I glued a ripped piece of pine to the top of the frames and brushed melted beeswax on them. The bees seem to be doing a great job drawing off of them. I have a couple of questions: 1. Will bees build larger cells when drawing void of wax foundation or are they drawing drone cells? The wax foundations all seem to be smaller. 2. I did not see any eggs, larva, pollen or brood on any of the frames with drawn comb in either super, just uncapped honey. I am anxious about the queen laying on the mediums and wanted to put an excluder on; But, would it be more prudent to leave the excluders off since they seem to be doing fine so far? I figured I would check back in 5-7 days and make sure she has not ventured upward. I am pretty excited to be able to add a second medium soon to these two hives.
