Replacing supers for final cleaning

432 1
Most of my hives have only 1 or 2 supers, a very poor year for many reasons. But I have a couple of hives that have about 4-5 supers. Has anyone ever replaced 4-5 supers back on the hive for cleaning or is that too manyat one time? I run single deeps this year.

No I have not but I expect you could get away with it one year or day but not the next.

If they are in the same yard why not spread them around? Drifting has already spread any disease you have they can't handle around . Maybe I'm just a pessimist on that count.
