Hello! I am a newbee and aquired two colonies recently which consist of a deep hive body, a queen excluder and a medium honey super on top. My plan is to take the honey super off (no comb drawn yet), take the excluder off, add an eight frame medium with foundationless frames (with one frame in middle having duragilt for something to help the bees draw staight natural comb) and add a filler board to close off the top of the ten frame deep brood due to the difference in super sizes. Ok so far? I am hoping the queen et al will move up into the eight frame and have that as the first of my new brood supers and then I suppose I should add a queen excluder between the deep and the new eight frame so I can remove the deep. Should I add another medium above to have a honey super or will that be too much space at once? I would like to run the colonies without an excluder....and I have read the queen is often discouraged from moving up into the honey supers if there are honey stores in the one above the brood super. But I don't have those stores yet. Ideas? Thank you.
