I have read in several sources that Southern beekeepers normally use a hive body plus one super for wintering, but that Northern beekeepers use 2 hive bodies. Is there a reason for this, or is it just a myth? It seems to me that our warmer winters which allow more flying time with expenditure of extra energy on the part of the bees would create a need for more honey stores, since there does not appear to be many blooming nectar sources during the winter months here. Anyone have any reliable info on this? Thanks all.
