Library Bees Eschew Comb Honey Frames

The Ross Rounds comb honey frames have been in place for more than two weeks at the library and the bees have not touched them.  Jack W. inspected the library hives on Saturday, July 31.   Both hives are vigorous and friendly.  We spotted the queen in one hive and showed her off to some observers on the other side of the glass.   We need a microphone in order to communicate with observers, since they might not have known what we were trying to show them, pointing at the queen crawling about on a frame.  Will the bees draw out wax and create nice fancy Ross Round comb honey sections?   Who knows.   There is no way to make a hive do what you think it should do.
