Double Deep Brood Box Reversal
Okay so this is the start of my second spring with my first two colonies, first spring of ever having established colonies. I use a double deep brood box setup and thought I understood that for an easy attempt at swarm prevention you are suppose to reverse boxes and that it is unusual for the queen to move downward to lay more eggs. Well today I set out to do the reversal and both my deeps are packed full of bees (and I mean full) with the top one being a little heavier with nectar and pollen. I reversed them still but didnt really feel that I was doing any justice. And for a side note, there were no queen cells on the bottom of any frames. Im just hoping that I didnt do more harm than good....
Anybody have any reassurance that Im okay still!!!
