    Re: Add a another super?

    I would wait until they drew out 8 of the 10 frames, then add another deep. 2 deep brood boxes right?

    Re: what would you do?

    I wouldn't. There's a good chance if they swarmed that you guaranteed you your hives no possible way to make a queen.

  13. Re: Jusrt got back from vaca and I find...

    So no hope in them making it? Recombine before winter?
  14. Re: Jusrt got back from vaca and I find...

    This might be a dumb question but how do you cut out a queen cell on plastic frames? I'm not gonna move them and I think I would like an open mated queen. This is the fun part about beekeeping! I...

    What about my 4th hive? Would it be ok to try and mix and match from the other three to start a new colony? Should I wait for another brood cycle? I can feed heavily so they should be able to build...
