So I am working with two nucs that came in deeps but over time I hope to switch all the deep frames to medium since that is what hardware I have and want to use. Right now I am using shims on the bottom of the medium to make up the difference in depth for the deep frames.
My question is. I got medium frames mixed in with the deeps and they are filling up medium frames quick but of course on occasion they build below the bottom of the medium frames because they are in a deep box….so how far down will they build their comb and should I remove what they build? I don’t like the thought of destroy brood laden comb on nucs I am trying to build up.
I have been swapping in new frames every week so the issue has not been that bad.
I am foundationless if it matters or not.
