I had two hives, #1 was doing great, #2 lost the queen and had less than two frames of bees left. #1 had a deep and two supers full of honey (for winter feed). I took the deep from #2 and put it on top of the #1 deep (below the two supers). So now I have a hive with two deep boxes and two supers. Should I remove one of the deeps for winter? If so, should I pick and choose what frames to leave in the deep for the bees? Not sure how many frames of honey/pollen/brood they need for the winter.
Thanks for any advise!
