Well, I am a new Bee Keeper. Purchased a couple of hives from a friend. I got them September 1st 2018. I have a million questions. I started a youtube channel out but that is slow going. I am sure once it starts going better I will become famous ;) just kidding. But I would like as much help as possible. No ideas are bad in my book.

First question: Each hive is two deep boxes. The bottom two are full and healthy hives. The tops have ten frames with barely any cob just a teeny tiny bit. So Do I just let them be for now and the winter or do I checkerboard them now and hope they draw more comb?

I don't see any responses yet,, so I recommend you attend the next Bee Meeting on Monday of next week. 6:30 is the start. We can get you all the answers at that meeting. FYI.. I am only in year 3. Youtube is my Friend..
