My first OB hive is being shipped today. It is a 3 frame job. I assume 2 for brood, 1 for super??
It will be inside with a tube to the outdoors.
What is the best way to stock it? Should I wait until I get a supercedure/swarm cell on a frame and use that frame? Or is it best to just get a new queen?
As to winter....... Do you just combing the OB into a larger colony for wintering?
