Bees have filled out one super so far, of honey. These are packages that were installed on April 13th. I have heard that in the first year you should not take any honey from the bees, and that is my plan. I was thinking of pulling out frames, vacuum packing them and placing them in the freezer for storage. Then adding empty frames for them to fill up again. Just today I added another Illinois super with 10 empty frames on one hive, I will add a super on hive #2 tomorrow, the 3rd hive is not as productive, but probably will be ready for another super in a few days. And of course, I only have one super left, have an order in with Mann Lake, but the Illinois supers were on back order. But I do have frames, have to put them together though.
I don't want to extract the honey and feed it back to them, I would rather leave it in the frames. Since I am running out of supers I figured storing the frames would be the best thing to do.
