Recently set up a Nicot system a box where my prized queen resides. This is her third year and she still out performs my other 5 queens. The frame i installed the system on is still a blank foundation. A few bees roaming around but no strong activity on it. Today I sprayed sugar water on the entire frame as I sometimes do when I install new, non drawn frames. There is drawn foundation, open and closed brood, and nectar frames around the brood frames. Any experience with this issue?

Thanks in advance.

More than 1, numbers seem to go up and down.
I used a brood comb with some stores and cut a square for the system (just below the top bar). I've had no problems with it at all...
