While I am sure this has been covered, I cannot currently find the thread.
I have seen that some people use 3 medium brood supers and some 2 deep supers. I was hoping to hear some pros and cons of both, other than the weight of a full super.
A brief background: We are currently working with deep boxes as that is what our mentor/supplier was using. We started with a mature hive and a split (both with deep brood boxes), the split was destroyed by a bear, so we have watched the remaining hive closely this winter with fingers crossed and so far everything looks good. I have plans to increase to 4 hives this summer and 6 or 8 next summer.
So, if I am to consider a switch to medium supers, I would like to do so now before I get to far in. With that all said, any advice/suggestions/reasons why mediums might be superior to deeps I would love to hear it.
