honeyman may be right about robbing right away. The girls perfer real nectar over sugar--even with HBH in it.

The robbing issue though will become a problem when the flow subsides, and we head into summer dearth conditions. It would be wise to keep the entrance reduced as much as you can. If your healthy two hives start booming, you can pull some frames of brood to put in the new ones to even out the strengh of the hives.
