Re: Can Anyone Tell Me What is Happening?
You can add one of those boxes no problem, (like yesterday it appears). Typically around here, you have two of those as "brood boxes", then most use mediums as "supers" for honey production on top of the double brood boxes.
Put the new box on top, then move one frame from each side of the bottom box up to the center of the new box, replace with new frames in the bottom box.
When the hive feels out of room, they will hit the trees. Bearding is pretty normal up here when it's warm, you guys have heat + usually higher humidity so I wouldn't be too alarmed unless they are out of space.
