    Need to check on my bees today. Thinking about pulling some of the frames that are fully capped. Here is my thought on this. In my first honey super remove capped frames. Put them in a empty deep and cover. To fill super back again remove frames from top super that is not filled. Add new frames to top super. Sound right?

    How soon after pulling the frames are you going to extract? If it's going to be within 2-3 days, I wouldn't add new frames. I'd just leave the space and then put the extracted frames back in as soon as you're done extracting.
