    This spring I will get two hives from a friend.

    As far as I know, these hives haven't been requeened in one to three years. Also, he is using only one box for brood.

    What I need to know (among other things) is:
    1. Should I be concerned with requeening either this year or next?
    2. Should I add another brood box?

    Cheers,
    theinein

    I would probably do both. I'd probably requeen and add a brood box.
