Early winter I asked what the ramifications might be for using a frame filled with sugar in the super above the cluster. I titled the thread "Camp Alternative" because the word "variation" didn't come to mind. The reason for putting frames in the box is because I made a split August 2nd and by the time it got going the colony hadn't pulled the foundation out completely and been able to store sugar water before cold weather set in.
So, even tho I was warned of a big mess, everything went well. The bees are booming and I had to take the frame out because they were building comb on it. You'll notice the webbing (from the Thanksgiving turkey) I used to anchor the sugar, unnecessary, the frame with 2 strands of fishing line is holding up fine
