Re: First time honey harvest
I always advise to err on the side of caution. How much honey is in the double deeps? How many bees? As the nectar flow ends all of those bees become consumers. Why not harvest one super and leave a super and a half? Then, at the onset of winter reevaluate and if they have more than enough for winter, harvest again. There's very little sadder than a hive that starves.
