    Default Moving frames into lower hive box?

    I have a hive started from a package that is doing well. The bees have not filled out all of the frames in the lower brood box but have moved up into the top box and are well along with brood and honey. Should I be taking frames from the upper hive body and moving them to the lower to fill out that lower box?

    Ideally you shouldn't add a second box till the first box is 80% or more filled.
