Re: Add a super this late in the season?
Hugh, If there is any room left in any of the boxes I would not add another box. If all three boxes are completely full and the honey super is all capped honey then you might add a fourth box to give them something to do. If you give them a fourth box they would probably work it faster if it was second down. It was a high of 54 degrees yesterday here and I am only 110 miles southwest from you, What did you think of that temp change, 90 degrees and two days later high of 54? The golden rod is at peak and will be fading fast. You should think about taking the existing honey super off if your going to or leave it for the bee's for winter your choice. Should reduce your entrance soon and think about treating for mites if your going to do that. I lost both of my first year hives last year because I did not treat. If you leave your hive overwinter as a three medium hive it looks like your in good shape. Good Luck.
