I am new to this forum so forgive me if there is a ton of info on this topic somewhere that I didnt find.
I was considering experimenting with my Langstroth boxes. Has anyone tried taking the bottom bar of the Deep nuc frames off the comb when transferring the frames into your deep. You would essentially be converting your deep box into a top bar. Then as the need arrives, nadir an empty deep under this first box and let them continue comb downward, occupying two boxes. Finally, as the need arises place regular framed Langstroth med supers on top. This would give the bees the benefit of having their own natural comb size for rearing brood, yet standard durable frames for extracting honey.
Unless Im crazy and not seeing some major issues with this, it seems someone else has to have tried this. Any thoughts or redirects would be much appreciated!
