This is probably a simple question but need to make sure I'm correct.
Today I replaced one if my old broken hives with a brand new hive. The new hive has 10 frames. The old hive had 3.
Looking at the front of the bee hive I took out 3 empty frames on the RIGHT. I replaced these frames with 3 frames full of bees with a queen.
Is this correct?
Should I have placed 1 full / 1 empty frame / 1 Full/ 1 Empty / 1 full and then the other 7 empty frames?
Will the bees just fill up the frames as they run out of space.
Any advise will be welcome.
Apis cerana (Asian bee) is what I have. Also a mix of Italian and apis cerana.
