Re: Two deep early fall split?
There is still time to do a split with a mated queen if your hive is brimming over with bees. The wet summer has kept the bees from a summer brood break and many hives in our area are real strong. I would add a medium super and feed like sugar is on sale. I don't know anyone local that is using single deeps to overwinter. Even my nucs have a medium super if not already two deeps.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
