I'm just full of questions the last few pages! I have one more... I got a new screened bottom board fro my hive! Yay! I think that the bees will like to have more air flow (its HOT where I live in the summer) and the added bonus of reducing/controling mites sounds good since I am paranoid about mites. Plus their old one is kinda old and grungey. The PROBLEM is that my old bottom board happens to be screwed onto the bottom super from the bottom. Meaning I have to turn it upside down to separate them. Would it be disasterously bad to take the new bottom board, set a new deep super on it next to the current hive, and then transfer the colony to the new box, frame by frame? I could then remove the old bottom board and empty super and stash them elsewhere. Will the bees notice/care that the walls in their bottom floor are different, and that their home moved 3 feet to the right? The upper supers they can keep as is, I will just move them over to the new ground floor. I know I would have to be careful to make sure the queen gets moved over safely, but is there anything else that I have to worry about?
