    Default Making the bees fill honey supers faster

    I have a little tip when adding honey supers. I do not know If this is normal practice but I have noticed when the bees have drawn out about half of a super I will add another one, But I do not put it on top of the existing one I put it under it . This seems to cause the bees to draw the comb out and fill up more supers faster.

    Probably true, but a lot of boxes to lift... try a google search on "undersupering".
