I am a first year beekeeper and have alot of questions,
I have 2 hives, my hive in question is all medium 8 frames boxes started from a package in may of this year,
during my last inspection, i had 2 mediums of brood,pollen and honey in the bottom 2 boxes and 2 boxes of honey on top, 1 of the honey supers was all capped and the other was partially sealed honey. my question is, i added another med with new frames and foundation that i alternated with some of the honey frames and wax fountaion hoping they would draw out the comb on the new frames for a total of 5 boxes,should i have done something different? or taken some honey off?. we have been told that we might not get enough honey the first year so i am leary of taking some honey that they might need for the winter. we are planning on having 2 med honey supers and 2 med brood boxes going into the winter ??
the bees are coming back with pollen should i be feeding now?
