Chief, I was following you until you got to the nine frame stuff. Nine frame spacing is for honey supers. If anything you want more surface area in the brood nest. If you can't pull frames to inspect, you HAVE to fix it. So go ahead and extract em. Try using ten frames while they're drawing comb. Remember before closing every hive to push the frames close together. All TEN of them. Nine won't cut it while they're drawing comb.

I had nine frame spacers on half of my supers. I removed them after grabbing the wrong one to try to draw out foundation. It doesn't work. I now have an eight frame manual spacer. Whcih I never have when I need it. Good thing I'm getting good with the tip of the uncapping knife.
