I was wondering if anyone uses a deep with a couple of supers on top for a brood chamber? I'm asking because i'm a newbee and of course I have two backfilled top deeps on my brood chamber, as a result of overfeeding and using a queen excluder I am sure. After digging around the site and seeing this is a common problem with those of us who use books that make it seem like paint by the number, I put the supers in between the deeps in the hopes they will draw out the comb there were as they have drawn none on top. But i was thinking about leaving the deep on top and let them fill and cap it and use the supers as more brood space. Both hives were queenless for a while, but I have found a new queen in both they made themselves. Tried to requeen after one had swarmed and thought why not replace both Italians with a better northern strain of bee, I'm a bee whisperer right! Ya, big fail, but the bees seem to have bailed me out. Is this a good idea? Any suggestions?
