Queen excluders and Supers- I want to get honey this year!

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

My colony that was new last year is now really full. So it's time to put supers on my Beehaus for the first time- yippee! BUT, they've been in situ for 1month and there is just no activity in them. The bees enjoy propolis-ing the queen excluder (its really difficult not to squash bees when putting on the Q excluder because there is no bee space) and when I check the supers there are an handful of bees wandering around but zero wax has been drawn the foundation yet. The hive is rammed with bees so I'm really surprised that more bees aren't venturing up there. Any tips on how to lure them up?!
