My brothers flow hive is filling up with honey fast. As part of our planned honey leakage/bee annoyance prevention strategy he had planned to harvest the frames incrementally over a period of days- two at a time. I suggested that he harvest the central ones- and them rotate them to the sides- so that the side one are in the middle and get filled and capped next.
That was the theory…
In practice the two outermost frames have more bee-space on the outer wall sides- these means the bees draw these combs out further and they can hold quite a bit more honey: the problem is if you swap positions then they are too fat to fit in the central part of the box without ruining the beespace for the adjacent combs. My brother did rotate the frames and now has a problem with his bee space. So much for the theory.
lesson learned: do not jiggle the frame position!
