I am fairly new, got 3 hives from an estate in dec, woodware in bad shape. A month ago I change the 1 brood box per hive and added a second brood box. They had 9 frames,
I took out 1 frame from side and added 1 foundationless frame to each side. Put the drawn frame in the middle of 2nd brood box. Oh, I used paint stirring sticks cut in half,hot glued in with 3 or 4 drops of glue. Checked first of this week all had frame in 1st box done, strongest hive has finished building comb in 5 frames of 2nd brood box, next strong hive has several done week hive has 4 started from bottom of frame. What is neat is to check bees and see 10 frames of festoon, bees hanging from top to bottom of frame, and side to side.
