I started the season with two hives. One is doing great. The second swarmed a couple times. I caught one of the after swarms and waited for the parent hive to requeen. Well, the swarm hive has requeened nicely and now fills a medium box, but the parent hive is now a laying worker hive.
It is too late in the season to try to let the laying worker hive requeen so I would like to shake them out near the small swarm hive so that it acquires more workers. My question is the wooden ware and frame. The swarm hive has 6 of 8 frames filled in their first box. They are ready for a second box especially if they are taking in homeless bees. When I do the shake out should I give them a box if for foundation until the homeless bees are settled in, or can I just drop the boxes from the shake out right onto the swarm hive? Or would it even be a good idea to let the frames from the shaken out hive sit for a day or two to kill the drone brood?
