Re: Wanna-be Beekeeper
Starting with an established colony is a good problem to have. What you don't need is a hive stand, slatted rack(unless you just want one) or a queen excluder(ditto). You have a hive stand that seems to be working perfectly well and slatted racks and queen excluders are used by lots of folks but are really not necessary. I would at least put a medium super on top or in between. Putting it in between might make them want to draw some comb out to bridge the gap inside. If you don't want to disturb them that much you can put it on top and see what happens. I don't think two years will be that big of a mess inside provided the frames are there and they are spaced right. Shouldn't need a feeder unless you are going to take honey off but wouldn't hurt to have one just in case it gets light. Next spring have at least another complete hive ready to go. You'll always need more space.
