Hi how often should I remove my super to check the brood box?

I check mine every couple weeks, although I only do complete inspections if it seems there is something that needs attention.

A beginner should inspect new hives every week or two weeks to learn what is going on and what it should (and should not) look like. Once you know what you should be seeing, it's usually adequate to lift the boxes and see if the bees are doing what they are supposed to.

new beekeepers check their hives a lot, new beekeepers have more problems with supercedure, absconding and no -queen colonies. every body gets the same bees from the suppliers. so leave them alone as much as you can. once you are past the first couple of weeks a quick look every 2 or 3 weeks should be ok, unless you have a good reason such as a mite check or whatever problems you have down under . they are your bees you can check them twice a day if you wish, but you may not enjoy the results. may I suggest setting up an observation hive if you must look every day.
