adding the super
I have two new hives that were pretty well established by the end of fall last year. I had placed supers on them late in the year but it didnt amount to
much being to late. So I took them back off for the winter. My question is....do I put the supers back on right when things start blooming or do I wait until
the brood boxes are filled back up?
Re: adding the super
Putting back the super on depends on the flow and the populated hive.
If they over crowd then put the super back on. If still not enough bees then
hold off the super until they can expand some more. This is to keep them
close to conserve more heat in this cold late Spring.
