    When do I start adding boxes? The kit has one box with ten frames. I assume this is called a brood box. I will need to add supers for honey production.

    I would add a second brood box first and then the supers.

    I would add the second brood box when the bees have drawn out the foundation on both sides of at least 7 frames otherwise they like to go up into the 2nd box without drawing out all the frames.
