I have 2 hives and one is doing really well. I put the 2nd deep on it last week. The bottom deep is so packed with bees and thick comb of capped honey on the upper parts of the frames that it's hard to get the first frame out. And propolis is building up on the frame rests making it work to even move the frames around.. My propolis/pollen stained fingers after today's inspection was like a badge of honor.

I am removing any brace comb i find. Anythng else I should do to keep the house clean? How often and how deep should I inspect the bottom deeps? Should I be pulling all frames even if I am seeing eggs and young brood?

Thanks
