Adding Supers

When adding supers do you just keep stacking them on or would you try to put the newest one on top of the brood super with the remaining supers on top.

its a matter of personal opinion with fierce proponents on either side. i use top entrances and put the empties on top, but i did it the other way for decades with what i considered to be success. good luck,mike
Lot's of opinions on that one. I bottom super unless I have a top entrance or, if I have two entrances, the bees are heavily using the top one.
Bottom supering early in the year is ok. Later in the year you will end up with to much brood in your supers unless you are using excluders.
