I'm new at this beekeeping. I had a hive installed about fall. The bees are busy going in and out all day. I opened the hive up, expecting to collect at least a couple frames of honey from the super, but there was NO honey there or in the hive body!! I quickly installed a hive top feeder, but don't know whats up. It is very dry and hot here and hardly no rain this last winter. some describe it here as brown and crunchy. is this normal?
