It makes the beekeeper think he/she is doing something to help the bees. As Batman pointed out, the rest of the summer the queen will move up and down between the lower two brood boxes, so why is it necessary to move her down at the start of spring?So my questions is why do that?
I said doesn't like to move down. I didn't say she wouldn't work downwards, she will lay where ever she can find space, but she finds that space faster on her way up.Saying that the queen doesn't like to move down seems a bit odd to me. If this were the case, it seems like once she got into the top brood chamber, wouldn't we have to move rotate the boxes again?
