I am running 8 langstroth top entrance hives all with sbb. A skunk got into 2 of the hives and the bees have since taken advantage of the holes in the screens and are using them as a bottom entrance. Anyhow I noticed that the bees have been congregating on the underside of the sbb the last few weeks. I wrote this off to bearding since it has been in the 100s for almost 2 months but, upon inspection, I noticed that they have actually built comb out the bottom of the hives where the sbb was torn by the skunk. The other 6 hives have actually built comb off the bottom of the frames far enough to where it bulges the screen on the sbb down about an inch. I have deep brood boxes and 1 deep super on top of each of the brood boxes for expansion.
The bees have been hesitant on moving up so my question is can i swap the boxes so the brood box is on top and the super is on the bottom since each hive seems to want to build down. I actually put a medium super under the 2 hives that have comb coming out of the the bottom.
