Got to thinking about this yesterday and came up with no ideas.
I have two colonies (sort of) I want to combine. One is a strong colony with two deeps, then an imre shim (providing upper entrance) and then a shallow for honey on the top. The other is a single deep of queenless house bees from my unsucessful attempt at a bee-tree removal.
If I put the single on the strong colony, where should it be in the stack-up, relative to the honey super? We've had very little blooming, so I doubt there is any honey to take now.
