I am wondering if the hive, or
More accurately new bees need to draw wax to stay "happy"
With lots of extra combs from dead outs this spring I found myself wondering if I should be including empty frames as well as I add boxes to the remaining hives?
Does having space to draw new comb serve a purpose in swarm control that empty drawn comb does not?
If so, what sort of ratio of empty space to drawn comb are folks aiming for?
