Yes and thanks. Just trying to keep them from swarming and don’t have lots of comb. I have 3 hives. I split one to help with the swarming. The other one I under supered with a 10 frame deep with hopes of getting them to draw it out and relive the swarming impulse but only had 2 frames of drawn comb to put in the new box. Would these frames be better served down in the bottom box on the side of the brood nest ?Noticed yesterday in this hive a queen cell with royal jelly. Hopefully this helpsAs I have replied before, though it's late in the season to begin, I would still recommending trying OSBN. What have you got to lose? Then keep doing 5-day tip-up checks for evidence of swarm preps and as a last resort deploy double screen boards, which are the most reliable very, very last minute swarm arresting splits.
And why not make it a priority to get your bees to draw extra combs every year?
