I should ask before acting, but sometimes you have to make decisions on the fly (sounds good). I went out to the hives today a nice sunny 62. One hive was a deadout--have no idea why, plenty of food, but hive beatles was a problem last fall. I really believed I had it under control. Not one dead bee in the hive????? But, the other hive was full of bees, boiling over with bees. My intention was to check stores and feed sugar brick if necessary, however I took the deep with the frames full of honey from the dead hive and set it on top of the second deep of this hive thinking that the honey would be better than a sugar brick. So now I have three deeps on this hive is that OK? Then, I left the other frames out in the open for the bees to clean up. There was some honey--- but not a lot. I will go out later and put the empty hive back together and can I just leave it next to the healthy hive where it is, or do I need to preserve the frames properly. I have mouse guards on both hives. What should I have done and what do I do now? Thanks for any help.
