    Default Medium swarm trap transfer to deep

    Checked all the swarm traps yesterday came back with two swarms. I was using medium body's and transferred one to a deep body. What is everyone's suggestions on transferring bees off medium frames onto/into deep frames/body's.

    Default Re: Medium swarm trap transfer to deep

    I just put the medium frames in a deep and try to stagger so the mediums are in between deeps. The bees will draw out the bottom to match the deep frames. Sometimes they attach it to the bottom board. Most of the time it turns out ok, sometimes it can get a little wonky. Or if you like, just cut out the comb and rubber band it into deep frames like you would a cutout.
