I put extra supers on three weeks ago and most have only one or two frames of drawn comb. I know the bees are workaholics so if they are able in any way, they'd be building combs and filling them.
I can feel for the bees. They're feeling a bit unemployed. You know bees: They need something to do to keep them happy. They're so much like me!
I had a large roasting pan that was full of wet cappings from the capping tank from last season. I could tell you that I kept them to give the bees in a time of dearth but I don't plan that far ahead.

They'll clean all the honey up and leave behind the nice clean wax which I'll use to make candles.
I think he might be right.
