Adding hive bodies
Question: why not start with three hive bodies on a warre instead of two?
If the heavily argued statement is that they hate drawing the bottom box due to additional light exposure through the screen, wouldn't this get you to two boxes full faster?
Also, it would reduce manipulations.
Curious to understand the full ramifications of too much bee room.
I know two boxes are 37 liters and three is 55 liters, wild swarms like to start in the 40 liter size or more, so what's the verdict on this practice?
Any research to share on the consequences of too much cavity space too fast so I can learn the principles more academically?
