Here in SC and down south the predominant hive set up is 1 deep then 1 medium for brood then honey supers. It seems more north you go double deeps is more the norm. Why? With our limited nectar flow and long pollen season why wouldn't most down here use double deeps? I would think they increased field force would maximize our limited nectar flow. Is it because greater numbers means you have to feed more?
