Hello All,
For whatever reason I have a deep hive body that has somehow warped slightly out of shape. I used this box last year and had no problems (I run two deep brood boxes). A couple of weeks ago I split a colony and the half with the established queen is doing excellent and has filled her box nicely. I NOW need to add her second box but one corner is at least a quarter inch off so the top box rocks back and forth, not to mention it is far more than the bees can fill. Does anyone have any suggestions what I can do??? I don't feel I can move all the established frames and queen into a new box (too much disturbance for a relatively recent split) and I don't know how one would shim up something for a good fit. I'd appreciate any advice or help as I MUST get the top box on to make some room for the massive brood being produced!!!! Thanks ahead!
