I need some advice. I lost my queen in one colony in September, so I combined with another hive. Both colonies were big an healthy. After the combine was successful, I removed the third box from the hive to overwinter in two deeps. They have 90lbs of honey to overwinter with, but now I'm wondering if I should have left that third box of resources on for them? Just because its now a huge population. I still have all the frames in the deep freezer. Should I throw the 3rd box on, or will the 90lbs get them through? Thanks

Hard to say if 90# will get them through or not. Where are you located? My bees will get by on around 40-50# here in Richmond, but the folks in Montana like around 120# to feel safe.
