Inspected my hives today, these were new hives installed from packages in late April on all new equipment. I'm not feeding any more. Question 1: When the lower deep was about 70% drawn out, I moved the undrawn frames in, and the last drawn frame to the outside and then added the second deep. I did the same thing with the second deep, before I added the honey super. They have drawn the honey super about 60% in a few weeks and have almost 4 frames full of honey. I was really happy when I saw that... looks like first year honey for me after all. However when I got to the lower deeps I found that they have not continued to draw any comb down there at all, and their stores are lacking as a result, I would hate to have full honey supers (mediums) come winter, and the deeps have undrawn comb and not enough stores. Is this normal? Should I just hold off on a second honey super and let them finish building and storing in what they have? The queen is even laying in the outside frames instead of them building up the inside ones. Question 2: I have a really hard time not smashing a few girls when I put the boxes back together. They love to hang out on the edges of the boxes, and smoking, or brushing them back in doesn't work. The more I brush in, the more show up to see what's going in. In actuality I have found the bee brush to be somewhat not useful at all. Brushing them just seems to anger them and never achieves my goal. My wife gets really upset that I am smashing bees every time I put the hive back together. Any tips on this would be great? I have tried just putting the box down and then sliding it over the one below, but this seems to crush just as many bees and is becoming more difficult as the propolis gets more and more built up between them it's impossible to slide them together. Thanks.
