  2. Bee Forum
    I started my first two hives last spring and am coming out of winter with one surviving. I overwintered with two deep brood boxes and a medium super full of honey. I figured the medium might serve the colony well if it ran out of honey in the deeps. The surviving hive has honey in the upper...

I added a box in June and am considering adding another, although I'm not sure if I should just let them...
  8. Equipment/Hardware
