So we got our first hive this spring and filled up two brood boxes and a med super. We took the honey off the med super and left the brood boxes alone. We placed a new undrawn med on top hoping to get a fall flow. Well things here in NE Kansas have not been very good. I looked tonight and only had one frame with any honey capped and it was very limited.
My Question is how do I get ready for the winter? Do I need to start feeding them now? Remove the med super then feed? Feed with Super? I have a feeder for the deep )brood box, I think that is what they are called) but they are full and doing well.
Also, how do I store the med and frames when I do remove it. I though about placing it in the freezer but I really do not have room. It appears that most of it is drawn out.
Thanks in advance for the help, We have really enjoyed keeping the bees and definitely enjoyed the honey.
