Hello all. Did an inspection on Monday, to discover plenty of workers, capped brood, but NO FOOD! I immediately gave them 2:1 syrup, but on returning yesterday, they hadn’t touched the food, nor were they interested. All flying well, and bringing back pollen. The temperatures were good, have a brood box topped with a super. Comments and advice please.

Too many - but not nearly enough
If the super is empty, take it off, if you are using any feeder, remember the bees don't 'smell' syrup so you have to trickle a little (In a rapid feeder) down the cone and onto the top bars for them to follow.
