    Putting new supers on

    Does anyone ever put new supers on the bottom of the supers or do you just keep adding to the top?

    What is the easiest way to feed honey back to bees? I took some honey off an established hive earlier this year and now I am wanting to feed it to my new hives. What do you recommend?

    Re: If I lost my queen?

    I've never had this few bees in a hive before. I would say less than ~1000 to 2000. That is the only reason I am worried.

    Re: Time to move hive

    I tapped on the side of the hive the other day and didn't hear any buzzing. I started to think all my bees were dead. I opened the top and they piled out at me and my dog. We both took off running.

    Time to move hive

    Is now a good time to move a hive since they spend most of there time in the hive and not flying around? Can I break the 3ft rule now as long as I put some brush in front of the entrance?
