I'm a new(er) beekeeper (Midwest) and am not sure what to do here.
I started a new colony at the end of July. I had a super strong hive and access to a fancy store-bought queen so I split the hive. The new hive started with 3 frames (out of 10) and in the last month they have filled the deep entirely.
I'm focusing now on how to get this colony to overwinter. I guess I have 3 choices
1. Do nothing. They are bugs and will do better without me then with me trying to help
2. I have a medium super with a little honey in it - let them have it to work with.
3. Add a spare deep I have (no comb) and feed'em
