My wife and I went in our 4 hives today. 3 hives still have 1 super in place while the other has 2. None of the supers were full of honey so we left the supper in place for winter . The only problem was 1 hive had a large amount of SHB .
Should a beek place menthol crystals in the hive for SHB if planning to leave the supers ? I plan on moving the hives approx. 3 ft. in front of where they now set,later this fall.
My wife says we need to place weed screen underneath to keep the grass and weeds from around the hives ,your opinion?
I suppose I should order some Guardstar to spray b-4 moving,opinion?
