Where to add a super?
« on: August 27, 2017, 09:44:30 pm »
 After splitting my hives, I added a deep to my strongest hive. The bees quickly filled it with honey with a small patch of brood on the bottom center of one frame.
I stuck another deep between them and the following week, they were building drawing comb from the bottom of the frames while crossing frames. I checkered boarded it with frames from the bottom deep and added a super. Last inspection was 5 days ago, they were filling out the new frames and plenty of capped and uncapped brood. No work has been done in the honey super.
 Should I put the empty super under the honey filled deep?

Question;
these "super" additions you are making Mr.Tiger, are the boxes of full depth(FD)
design, medium (M), half depth(HD), or something else.
      : tips hat:
As inane as the question may appear to some,  it is I believe of critical import
as a decision when buying/building  "beyond the broodchamber" infrastructure,
and not just for comb draw anomalies as reason.

Cheers.
