Dear All,
Patience with my explanation please. I borrowed two brood frames from a friend's hive in order to expedite growing my popullation with a newly introduced queen. Now, I would like to return these two brood frames as quickly as possible as I have promised. The conundrum being that these two frames right now are my only brood frames. How do I/can I/should I manipulate my frames in order to properly grow my brood area. I have right now two 10 frame medium boxes. All of these frames are primarily honey and some pollen. I have plenty of empty frames that I can add anywhere. I think I should put empty frames around the two brood frames, but want opinions as this is only my second year and need maintenance advice and need/want to return these brood frames as quickly as possible.
