I installed a package 22 days ago on 8 frame medium foundationless frames and today I added another 8 frame foundationless medium box because the original has been drawn out on all 8 frames. But I added the new box below the original. Should I have put it on top? My thought was bees build down. But I just reread Beekeeping For Dummies and it says to add the new box on top. Should I go back now and do this or leave it alone? Remember my frames are foundationless. Thanks!

Yeah I messed up. I just went and fixed it. I thought I could do it without relighting my smoker or wearing gloves. Bad idea. They lit my finger up. It's hard to type my finger is swelling so much. Lesson learned.

It got down to 38 degrees here last night. I sure hope there were enough bees to keep the brood warm in the one frame that I place in the new box as a ladder because my frames are foundationless.
