I started this hive May 1st. of this year. I did an inspection 1 month ago tomorrow and found that they had built out 8 of the 10 frames so I added a new super. I have continually checked their process and to my surprise they have yet to start building on either the of the two frames left in the bottom box nor have they touched the frames in the top box. Some of you may remember I had SHB break-out and had to freeze five of my frames back at the end of May. After I took them out of the freezer and replaced them in the box the girls had them cleaned up and filled back out plus all of the other frames (minus the two still empty)within a week. So my question is, how long is too long for them to finish out those two frames and to start on the new box?
