Several weeks ago my husband and I added frames to additional deep hive bodies to add to the top of each of our 4 hives. As Perrybee and others suggested, we moved a few of the frames from the lower box into the new upper chambers to give the bees a little incentive to move on up. It seems to have done well because a couple of days ago we opened the top of each hive to work on ventilation and noticed that the upper boxes seemed to be very busy with bees. When we initially did this we noticed that each brood chamber had what looked to be a couple of pure drawn combs filled with capped honey. What I am wondering is, when we go to add supers on top of the two lower boxes we have designated for brood, is it acceptable to move the drawn combs filled with honey up into them? Everyday the bearding grows larger on two of the 4 hives which leads me to believe that those two hives have been growing quickly. Would removing the frames of honey into the supers and then replacing them with fresh frames of foundation in the brood chamber give the queen additional space to lay? Or would the workers even draw it out for her to use or would they fill them with honey again? I know they make up their own minds how they will use the frames, but I am hoping to coax the queen into building the colony. From what I was reading in a different posting, the queen will not cross frames filled with honey and pollen. Is there some plan of arrangement that any of you use when manipulating the frames for maximum production?
