Sorry for flooding this forum so much! We have two hives in our home yard. Both 10 frame deeps. Hive A has a brood box and a super, Hive B has a brood box and two supers. Hive A was traditionally the better hive but we requeened both and B is now a boomer. We gave them the extra super from A as they weren't using it.
Every morning Hive B has well and truly more than 10x the activity at the entrance.. only a few bees are coming and going from A. I'm worried about this huge imbalance - especially when spring time comes. We did an inspection on A and everything seemed OK apart from a general downsizing (see my 'Questions About Winter Inspections' thread).
Is there anything I can do? Should I swap the positions of the two hives to bolster Hive A's numbers? They're super heavy at the moment so to swap them I assume you just take them apart and move one box at a time?
Come spring time I'll be making splits from Hive B because that queen is a cracker!
