    I did get it at a meeting. :(

    Canadian Oil Less Acid would be a better fit.

    50 years from now, this could be standard practice for bee keepers.
    Wouldn't THAT be something!?!

    Re: I think it's time for a super

    If you're worried that you put another super on too early, you didn't.
    At 90% full, you were late.

    How long does Canola bloom?
    Do the bees like it?

    Re: what now

    Did you start out with ONE brood super only?
    Generally, one would start with one deep, wait until they have it 70-80% worked, and then add another deep. After that brood box is worked up, the honey...

    Re: Just Smokin'

    I went to a honey festival in Frankenmuth Michigan last weekend.
    They were doing a bee beard demo on a guy and he lit his smoker up. It was binder twine. IT BILLOWED for a long long long time.

    Honey bound is where the brood chamber is so crammed full of honey that the queen has no place to lay!

    Get rid of the top box or get the appropriate amount of frames in it or you will have some wild comb!

    Why'd he do that?!?!

    You have more experience than I do, and I don't use excluders either. It amazes me how the queen stays in the brood chambers and the rest get filled with honey. I had some capped brood in the bottom...

    From the looks of your pictures, it doesn't look like you have enough bees to need to draw more frames. The landing boards on my April package hives are never that sparse.
