Reduce colony size after removing supers?

630 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Plannerwgp
I use mediums as main hive and add 2 medium supers for honey.
After removing my two supers last week they seem to be very packed.
Should I just let them be crowded like that and eventually they will adjust back to 3 mediums or should I put a forth medium and remove it at some point before winter? I'd rather not let them go into 4 mediums permanently as I assume next year they would want to have 6 :)
