I placed a cloak board between the brood chambers of a double deep hive after rotating the hive 180 degrees. The queen is in the bottom chamber and I added bees shook from a total of 10 deep frames from two donor colonies to the top chamber to increase the strength for cell building. One frame was removed from the center of the top chamber so it is ready for the grafts to be added tomorrow. The cloak board is closed to make the top chamber queenless.
