I'm in Decatur Alabama, I have two hives just started this year. (First year Beek) Had one swarm they queen is laying again and they are drawing out comb in the second brood box. The other hive is booming. They filled two deep brood boxes and they have filled one Medium Honey Super which is almost all capped honey now, The second medium super is about full in 8 days, and I am wondering a few things.
1) Is there enough time to add a third super in my area?
2) When should I be pulling my supers off? (I have heard end of July)
3) For the hive that swarmed I feel they will be able to build up their second box in time for winter. Is this right?
4) I was not expecting any Honey, I have read some post that a 10 frame medium super fully drawn out can produce 3.6# per frame, is that Right?
Thanks everyone's posts they have all been helpful. I dint put this in the 101 forum because I found the SE Tenn nectar flow post here.
