I opened my hive today-the bees drew out 5mm of wax in the super and then deserted it. No Queen cells, no swarms, plenty of worker bees, what happened?? :shock:

are you saying the bees all left. or are they still there and havent drawn out comb. if the later is the case I would bet your flow ended and they didnt need the comb. They will pull it as they need it

What riverrat said. Your bees are probably taking care of their own stores before they start supplying you. ;)

If everything looks OK from the outside, and they don't appear to be acting differently or in any distress, I'd leave them alone. When they need the extra storage space, they'll move up.
