Ok Folks....Now the question is, "How do I get them to move up into a deep?"
I have an inner cover screwed to the top where a 5 inch opening is, then a deep screwed to that with frames. The deep is at a 30 degree angle front to back of the hive. I never got a chance to cut the top even before this swarm moved in.
They are working just below the opening on the inner cover(which is on the bottom of the deep). This swarm was rather big and is very very busy.
I really need help decideing what I can do to help them...unless you all say leave the darn Bees alone for god's sake...
I put 10 frames in there with stater strips and foundation every other frame as a guide. If I put a frames of brood from another hive would that help...they have only been there a week.
