Re: When to add 2nd brood box after split?
I make sure there are enough bees to protect the new area for adding a second full box. I will sometimes only put a few new frames up top in the new box if the need a little space to grow. You have to keep an eye on them because they will start to draw comb out lid if they run out of space with a partially full box on top, but its better than them swarming because they didnt have enough room.
