Re: Help-Hives feeling a bit lite in Southern Maine
If you want the best chance of survival I would put the supers on, the bees will move up. You may have brood in your supers next spring, but you having brood is the idea after all. No harm. just reverse or use queen excluder to let them emoty the super in the spring.
If you want the honey look at the my sugar brick recipe post from Lauri. Mountain camp is very similar, sheet of newspaper and dry sugar in a 1.5 spacer between the upper frames and inner cover.
