2. i have 2 brood boxes, the top one is new. should i and how do i rotate the frames in the boxes so that they fill them?
If you're trying to get them to build in the second box...and they're refusing, you could pull the two middle frames from the bottom and put them in the same position on the top. then push the bottom frames together and add an empty frame to each side.
If you're doing foundationless, I would do the same except on the bottom box, push the two center frames together and add the empty frames between them and the outer frames.
