I have polyhives x2 and it’s my first year. They didn’t draw any supers at all but had plenty of brood and looked strong. I gave them syrup but now it’s cooler so I have some hive alive fondant. I have used a super as an eke and applied the hive alive direct onto the frames with a glass crownboard on top of the empty super so I can spy in. The empty super walls are packed with bees which is partly why I put the fondant onto the frames instead of lowering the crownboard onto the frames( because it would be a lot of bees to shake out of the super). But now I’m wondering if the hive alive will make everything too sticky and bees unable to fly ( because too sticky) - basically was this a mistake? Should I shake the bees out of the super and put the crown board onto the frames and the fondant on top of the crown board? First winter.never done this before.
