Today went with a friend to check his two hives. This is his second year. Both have two deeps. Opened one and there were a lot of been in the inner cover. Hr pulled out the first frame and the top half was capped honey. Bottom and sides were still in nectar form. Pulled the next and there was a lot of pollen in the cells and the bottom had a queen cell with one inside. He didn't pull anymore frames but he wanted to peak at the lower deep. As we pried you could tell the top deep was very heavy. When we broke the seal and took a peak you could see what this newbie was queen cells between the bottom frame and the top frames of the bottom deep. We saw several drones going in and out of the opening. Wouldn't placing a empty framed deep in between these two help? Seems he is going to have a swarm on his hands soon.
