I recently bought(last week) four ten frame commercial hives, when i got home i transferred them into four 8 frame deep hives, the left over 2 frames from each of the four hives went into a fifth 8 frame deep. One of the hives had hundreds of dead bees on the bottom board and around the hive. So i have checked three times since the transfer and three of the hives plus the extra are queenless. Also one of the queenless hives is low on bees. I have ordered 4 queens, but my question is this, should i take a frame of bees and brood from one of the two strong queenless hives and add to the weak hives to help them build up numbers prior to the queens being introduced. I am in western NY, and there is still time for the fall flow.
