Full super, no extractor. What to do?
I went to the hive this afternoon to do a quick inspection to see if they were ready to split. I found them in the middle of a huge orientation flight, so rather than break the hive apart as planned, I just popped the cover and looked at the super. It's completely capped!
Of course, I don't have an extractor. Is it OK to leave the super on for the next 5 1/2 months? If my bees keep this up, I'm going to need an extractor or a lot more supers!
Don't provoke a hive full of angry bees.
