I just purchased two complete and active hives and am super excited about having and managing them. However I am confused about a couple things:
I have a hive with one Brood box and two supers on it. To access the lower super, can I just pick up the whole top one? Or do I need to remove all of the frames in the top one to access the lower one?
Also I see you can order "patties" from Mann Lake. Are these the same as feeding sugar water, or do you want to feed them sugar water sometimes and patties other times? Can you overfeed them?
Thanks for any help!
