I inspected the hive today and my first brood box was nearly full of comb. Good brood pattern and honey. So I added my second 8 frame brood box on top of the first.
My question: Since I know the first brood box is well drawn out with comb and now underneath the second brood box do I need to keep inspecting the first box? It would obviously be more difficult as I would have to lift off the second box and lay it aside with the risk of smashing a few bees. I’d hate for the queen to be in that second box when I layed it aside.
