I located in southern Ontario - east of toronto. Last week I took honey supers off of my hives to get them ready for the winter. A few days later I noticed a hive was very full. I put a deep super on it. This quickly filled and became heavy with honey so I put another on on. Is this hive overcrowded? Will it swarm this time of year?? Here is a pic as the bees are very bearded up in the front, completely blocking the entrance.Click image for larger version.
