I have 1 hive that has put up 180 lbs. of honey (supers only). It's an overwintered hive with a new queen. It must have at least 100,000 workers and is really calm. I torn it down on a cloudy day, no smoke, and they didn't even noticed me. 3 deeps brood and 4 supers on it now, and its filled with bees from top to bottom.
