Uhhh, now I wonder if this new poster on the forum is a scammer trying to cover his tracks! Just kidding... sorta. I'm glad you posted up here to help set the record straight. I wish you well in your endeavor. Hopefully, once you are up and running, folks will give you a chance. When I start hearing a lot of buzz about your business, I might do the same. I definitely would if I lived close enough to check you out in person.

Did yards and lifeguard, and taught swimming lessons till I was old enough to get a job in the textile mill. And yes, I walked to school both ways but luckily just around a mile  :wink:

I never heard back.  Not sure if it's a scam or just someone who never got off the ground.  Either way, I'll be staying far away.
Maybe stack a couple of mediums, Look at the nucs, there will usually be a frame of honey, probably only 3 or 4 frames of brood. Drop them on one side of the mediums with medium frames filling the rest of the hive. As they expand into the medium frames in the center the end frame will usually empty as the brood hatches. As it does remove it and move everything over. Repeat as you can. Problems are they will build burr comb on bottom. Also you have to have an empty hive body when you go in to inspect to sit the top medium on until you get the deeps worked out. 

Or after they get going in the mediums, make sure the queen is in the mediums, set a deep box on top for the deep frames with an excluder. As they empty out remove them.

Both hives are doing well, will be adding my first super to one of the hive tomorrow as this box is now all drawn out. The other hive is a bit slower may wait another week or so. Very happy with the progress, I've had a few beetles in both hives. I have added a couple AJ traps on top of the frames, which have been working. :grin:
