I’m a little surprised. When I tried peeking in to the hive yesterday, bees were sitting on the box and I didn’t see a lot of movement toward the front of the hive. It appears that they got moving when I finally calmed down and left them alone. This morning when I went out to remove the box, they were ALL clustered up at the front and about a quarter of the quart of sugar syrup was gone.
