I only have one hive and this is my first full season so I have spent more time in the books than the hives but still have questions. Over the last couple of months or so I have noticed something and can't figure out what to do. The hive is currently two deeps and a super. In early May I found the upper deep full of honey and some brood so added a super. First of June I found the upper deep full of honey including the old brood cells but the super empty. Worried that the queen was getting crowded I removed four frames of honey from the upper deep, moved three brood frames up from the lower and replaced them with new foundation and one new foundation in the upper deep. Yesterday I found that the foundation in the lower deep had been drawn out and about half full of brood but the upper deep was again full of honey and no brood. The super was still empty.
Is there a strategy to get the queen to use both deeps and force honey storage into the supers? I have read that you can bait the super with some drawn comb but all I have is foundation for the supers. I was hoping to get at least a little cut comb this fall.
