   I have a hive that I am re queening. Its a hive body on the bottom and a medium on top. Does it matter it I put her in the bottom hive body? the top is kind of full of honey, the bottom has brood and no honey. Does it matter at all were she goes as long as it is near the center of one of the boxes?

Thanks

I prefer to put her with some capped brood that will hopefully be emerging in a day or two.  I believe that this helps with acceptance.
