    I started a swarm in an eight frame shallow. When they fill this out, I want to transfer them to a deep. How is the best way to do this?
    I know that I can move some of the frames over, but not all of them.

    Just set the deep under the shallow and harvest the shallow when fully capped with honey.

    Thanks, I should have asked on this forum before I got a headache thinking about what to do.
    Can't believe it is that simple.
    Why is it we try and do it the most difficult way?
