Re: Inspection when supers are on
I havnt performed a thorough check on my hives for almost a month, the bees are packing in nectar/pollen and the numbers look great on the landing board, so I dont think there is a need to interupt them during the flow! I do check the supers once a week to see how everything is going, the Italian hive is almost done capping the honey in all the frames of a 10 frame medium, as of last week anyhow!! Will open things up this evening to see if they have started in the second super.
I am not as experienced as most everyone on here, but this is just a summary of my personal experience, and this is coming from a person who inspected his hives every few days to once a week to learn and study the development of my new hobby!!
