    Default Is it OK to extract now?

    I am in my 3rd year and have three hives that are topped with 2 medium supers each. They are all busting with capped honey. Can I extract now and simply put the same mediums back on top and extract again in June or is it better to add supers with foundation to build up drawn comb?

    Nothing wrong with extracting them, make sure the caps are kind of sunk in, then it is ready. I would go ahead and get the honey while the flow is on. If you want to get more supers filled out. I would do it in between the flows, take one off that is filled out and replace it with one that ahs new foundation in it.
