Has anyone ever transferred a colony from a top bar setup to a langstroth? How do you do this? Thanks!

HI there, It's a bit easier to go the direction you are planning, because you can wire a top bar onto a Langstroth deep frame, as in the attached photo. You may have to trim the bottom of the comb to fit a deep frame, however. The bees will fill out the rest of the frame. Good luck, Tracy
