    They're really drawing out the comb. Question though....Why don't you add some horizontal support wire?

    Well that was my intention installing fishing line as support wires but "stuff" happened and it never got done to this set of frames.

    Well just as another update the hive started out rough and started to grow but last month no real progress, Two months after being hived have only drawn out 8 out of the 10 frames in the hive two still empty. The rest of the frames are not even fully drawn out themselves. The two swarms that I have caught are already drawn out all 10 frames at least 75% and that is only three weeks not two months. Well anyway I found a single queen cell on the frame so figure the hive will be replacing her soon.
