my hive in SF bay area is booming.... should I swap box positions?
I've been at this since last spring and now face a successful colony.
All indications are that the nectar flow is on, new bees are birthing and my hive is booming. I'm planning a thorough inspection tomorrow - Sunday - and I wonder if it's wise to swap the position of my two boxes. I've understood that the queen will move up the hive to lay. If I find her in the top box tomorrow, and there is less or no brood in the bottom, is it right to swap the positions of the boxes?
