I got two five frame nucs this year and set in foundationless frames. The frames are almost all drawn now. When should i give them another box? In the new box do i move drawn comb up for a guide, how many frames if so?

I'm foundationless and I'll try to add a box when the first is started drawing on all frames. I move two frames up, sometimes three if their really strong.

As they draw these out I move drawn frames toward the outside and drop undrawn frames between them.
