I received my package April 1 this year. On Saturday it will be 10 days. I have 8 frame Mediums. Ive heard a few different approaches to adding another super (currently they are in 1 super).
1) when should I add it? I'm thinking in about 21 days after the queen was released (on about day 4 after I received the package) since thats when new worker bees should be emerging and frankly the hive looks full of bees just from the original package.
I've also seen advice to add a super once about 3/4 of the frames are full (of brood, pollen, and honey). Thoughts?
2) How should I add it? Im thinking about adding it below the current super they are in-heat rises, yea? Should I pull any outside drawn frames and put them in the new super?
Thanks in advance! Kevin
