I inspected my honey super on April 25th about a month after moving the bees to my property and found 5 of the 10 frames at least partially filled with uncapped honey. If things have progressed as I expect, I should have one honey super full now. I placed two honey supers on when I originally set the hive up not knowing any better.
But my question is: If I find the top super full (or nearly so) do I remove it completely or just swap places with the bottom honey super?
If I remove it, then what? Is it too early to harvest the honey? The guy I bought the bees from said I ought to wait until the 3rd week in June to harvest any honey but didn't say why. I'd appreciate any advice you have to offer.
