Janna Mintz replied to Renee's discussion Top Bar Wax Saving

Janna Mintz replied to Lisa Moss's discussion Top bar spacing for a rocking' hive
"Did you give any brood to the weak hive? I would give them some capped brood with nurse bees to give them some extra help. Make sure you don't give them your healthy, laying queen.  Keep all the brood together in each hive to make it…"
