    Default Adding supers in fall

    Just a quick question. One of my hives has two shallow supers full of capped honey. I extracted one and left the other for them. Would it be wise to extract the other and give it back to them to use during the fall flow or just let them start back filling the brood chamber and take it then. We only need one deep for the winter and my thought was they would have more space to cure incoming nectar if there was empty comb.

    I would extract, but that's me. Supers are for you, the broodnest is for them. I just went through PA last weekend and there's a goldenrod bomb in your near future!
