Summer Honey Needs
Was just reading the thread on mediums for supers and how many are needed.
Mr Beeman stated that 3 for brood and 1 for honey. And that is what I currently have on my strongest hives. But I have a question related to that.
Come winter, using last winter as a guide, it seems that if we have a goldenrod flow, then one medium over the winter seems to be enough.
But what about summer time periods when there is no flow. Is a medium full of honey enough to hold 3 mediums of bees for a few weeks in the summer? A month...? Eight weeks ?
Anyone on the gulf coast that might be able to let me know how much they use during the summer periods.
Started 9/13, building slowly, now @ 7 Lang hives + 3 nucs, and treatment style not decided yet
