I already have a supers worth of capped and at 50% of a second capped with the remaining pretty full of honey. The tulip polars havenít even bloomed here yet.
1 is it normal in the piedmont area of NC for this to happen so early?
2. What do you all do with this situation? Take the capped out and replace with empty frames or leave them on and just stack very high? If I take now, then can I freeze the frames and do the extraction all at once or should I extract as I get them? ( I had it in my mind that I would do one big extraction in June- wow things arenít going as thought with bees......weird)
3. Are others in NC seeing the same?
I am a second year beekeeper, and this is my first year with established hives.
