I caught a swarm today and put it into a Warre hive.
I used the three boxes I had as I wanted to make sure they had enough room. Should I take 1 or 2 of those off? And go ahead or wait a day or so?
In my haste to put the cover on, I forgot to add the top bars to the top box so I still need to do that. The lower boxes have 2 top bars on each side. Should I go ahead and get all the top bars in there as soon as I can?
We are in the beginning of our flow so have lots of blooms around. So I shouldn't feed, right?
I have 3 top bar drawn combs for the Warre that are in the parent Langstroth hive. They probably have brood in them. When should I move them to the Warre hive? The drawn combs probably have wax moth larvae in them - should I freeze the frames and sacrifice the brood?
Thanks for helping me sort this out.
