Ok I was wondering... I got some super cells and want the queen to use them, so I was thinking, if I rotate the boxes, say take super cell box and place it on the bottom, and place the current brood box and rotate it up. Will the queen move down and start laying there? Ok before anyone answers please read on. I understand that for bees to accept plastic they should have no room to expand elsewhere, I get that part. What I am trying to achieve here, is the wax part to stop being used as brood laying place and for queen to start using super cell. The point is I need all wax ones to hatch out, so I can fix those combs, and I am really nervous about going in to fix right now because I dont want to kill the little unhatched ones, nor do I want to squish a queen in the process by mistake .
So will this rotation work? If you have an improved method, please let me know
