Anyone else have more than the expected amount of honey stores in their hives? Four of mine are "blessed" to varying degrees, but all are more than I anticipated. I'm planning to pull a few frames to use in the new hive and then see about adding supers to the others.
I talked with a member from Jefferson county beekeepers association and he said that he had a good March flow and had a super that was already capped.
Glad to hear that I'm not "seeing things" --- I'm pulling four today and moving them to the new hive. I have nucs arriving next week and I'll need a few for them, too.
OK, I ended up pulling five frames for myself - fully capped, good color, and delicious! - and moving 8 or 9 others (partially capped) to balance the honey stores according to brood patterns, at least as much as I understand those patterns. Hopefully, I haven't screwed anything up that the bees can't fix!
Checked on my hives and had 1 1/2 supers full on 4 hives. I will be putting another super on each of those hives. One hive has just started on the first super and one has not touched the first super.
