    Hi all,

    We are coming to the end of the nectar flow here in Md. I have 1 medium super filled with partially capped honey. I figure by the 4th of July, it should all be capped.

    Don't really know if adding another super at this time would be beneficial? I don't think the bees will have time to draw the comb. Comments?

    Thanks a bunch!

    I always have some empty space on them until late fall. You never know what flow might start and if there's no room what will they do? If there is anything still green a flow could still happpen.

    Thanks Mike,

    I figured as much. I just put another super on top of the old hive and fed my new hive.

    Have a nice weekend
