Rotate the brood and especially the queen to the bottom before they swarm.
Nope. I would place the supers on the bottom, then the deep with brood and honey, and then the empty deep. I would also add a couple honey supers on top. Is one of the supers newly added…as you wintered with only one super. Does it have brood too? If it only has nectar I would leave it on top of the broodnest after you reverse and then add a new super on top.thanks - so the two supers to the bottom, then the empty deep, with the other deep on top? Good to add another super above the deeps with a QE on?
