Ok question when you have a hive with say single brood chamber and 5 supers. If you take 2 or 3 supers off how do you keep them from swarming? Wont this make them run out of room?

I don't think taking supers off will cause swarming. I have single deeps and multiple supers. I first apply light smoke, use a fume board, and then remove the entire super or each frame and brush off with a brush. You do have to be careful to cover the supers you mevove so as not to cause robbing.
