On 6/25 I added a second brood box (deep) to the hive I installed on 5/12. (package on foundationless frames with wedges flipped). I did an inspection tonight. Most of it looks good. A little thick but mostly straight comb. A mix of brood in all stages and some drone comb. There were two frames with combs three inches thick. Obviously it was crossed to the next frame. I cut and pulled it apart the best I could. A honey explosion ensued. There was some brood lost, but not much. More dead and drowned bees than I would have liked. The comb was so thick I couldn't get the frames back in the box. I had to cut most of it free. The squished portions I put on the inner cover with a box over it. I took an 8x8 section to eat. I pulled the feeder off.
This is all the top box. I didn't even get into the bottom box. I had the hive open more than 30 minutes. I was covered in honey and the ladies were starting to get in under my veil.
So, where do I go from here? Check again in a week? Suggestions or comments for this newbee? Thoughts about adding a super? 7 of 10 frames were drawn out.
