Re: Adding a super as well as nadiring a new brood box
In my experience if you are going to nadir you need to add a seed comb. I have never been able to get the bees to move down without putting a comb down below. I plan on doing both, which includes putting a seed comb above and below. In fact if you put a comb with some brood in it, they have a much greater chance at moving down. This seems to work better if you have half frames or partially drawn comb. It's certainly possible to move full combs. It's just much harder.
