I think the forum is running out of ideas
If you put one frame of the super foundation in the brood, do you think they would start to draw it...then conitnue to draw if it is then repalced in the super ...or get another hive to start the intial drawing?
I must say 'Thanks for all the ideas', it's just a matter of time to see what works now.
I had thought about putting a super frame into the brood box & then transfering it to the supper, but then our first hive swarmed & we lost the (clipped) queen & I forgot all about it :-(
Unfortunately all my 14X12s are in the same state, my WBC is busy building up to it's 6th frame & the TBH is full of laying workers, so I couldn't use another hive to draw some super frames out.
