    Question

    Should I place a few frames with foundation in the hive body to give the girls some thing to build on? or should I wait and see what they are going to do with the comb I tied in the couple of frames I did install? Confused over the Question. See the thread new guy, really green and maybe crazy too, and second installment.

    If you don't fill the box and they do move up, they will, and not the way you want them to.

    If I remember right you had two boxes on right now. I'd just put in one with either comb or foundation in the frames, or at least starter strips. If you put two boxes of frames with full sheets of foundation it may warp before the bees get around to it. Don't put the foundation in until you expect to add the box and don't add the second box until the first is pretty well drawn.
