    Default Its late Aug. All of the the hive bodies are full...should I add another Medium?

    Hey ya'll,

    My one hive is made up of a large and 2 mediums. I just checked the other day and the bees have filled out all of the frames.
    I'm a noob at this so I am not sure what to do. ...Is it too late in the season to add another medium? Should I add another?

    Thanks!

    Add another medium and enjoy the fall flow honey they will make. If your deep and two mediums are full, kudos to you.

    If there is white comb packed in on the top bars, the lower boxes are indeed full (usually) and you could add another box. I have the best flow of a pathetic year going on right now myself. I added boxes where required yesterday and pulled supers when there was still room below.
