We are running a 3 deep set up because of the recommendation by the U of MN. They have filled the 3rd with all honey and are finalizing the capping. We have also had supers on for almost a month and they haven't touched it.
1. Should we have brought a brood frame up to that box originally?
2. Should I take out the couple of frames that are fully capped and replace with non drawn out ones in hope they will fill by fall?
It seems to me they have room but my main concern now would be swarming with 1 box completely full of honey. Also we were not even planning to have honey this first year but seeing them go to town on this deep made me hopeful and now I'm trying to figure out anyway to get some. If it doesn't happen that's fine the bees are the priority here.
