    I've disassembled all the dead outs, and have alot of of deep frames with comb. Some are empty, some are packed with honey, nectar and pollen.
    All are going to the freezer as a precaution,
    What's the best orientaition for the used frames in the boxes for the new bees.
    I'm assuming all the food goes inboard and empty stuff on the outoard... :?:

    I would think the opposite. Food on the outside and empty comb for brood on the inside.

    Empty drawn comb inside, then one frame of foundation, if available, then honey, then pollen to the outside.
