I don't know if you use a mix of box sizes, but if you use all meds for example, have you thought of nadiring the boxes instead of supering them.

This is the method used in Warre hives and from all I have seen, it works very well as bees build comb from the top down anyway.

Just a thought.

to "nadir" is to put the boxes below the current ones. to "super" is to put the new boxes on top hence honey 'supers'

So , instead of adding your additional boxes on top of the ones already there, you would pick up the existing boxes and place the empty frames underneath.
