    Thanks! Yes It was very successfull! within the first 3-4 days, all the comb was fully attched to the frames and most of the elastics were allready cut and starting to be dragged out the entrances. They succeded in filling a full second deep super with 80% capped honey as well before the winter, so I am confident they have a great chance to survive our cold winter. I would like to split this hive in the spring because I beleive they are great genetics in this strong colony!

    excellent, sounds like you placed them in a really good location. i noticed horizontal wires on the frames you put the cut out comb on, did you just push the comb through the wires to get it centered on the frames?

    Yes some I intertwined them and some frames had no wires, used what i had at time. I was lucky that the dimensions were similar to a deep super, Made for alot less cutting to get the combe to fit :0
