« on: July 01, 2013, 08:27:57 PM »
I have two honey supers on a hive.one is completely full and on top of that one is a empty one that has drawned comb. if I rotate them and put the empty underneath the full one will they feel it faster?

Some will tell you yes and advocate bottom supering. I say no but do it occasionally  :-D Something sometimes just says try it.

the empty is on top of the full?  why not just pull the full one if it's capped.  if not capped,  i usually put the empty one under the full.  they will cap the top and start filling the empty.  it makes it easier to pull the full one when it's ready anyway.
