One of my hives has drawn out pretty much all the frames on both deeps. The top deep is full of honey. I would guess it to be 70 pounds but it could be more. Should I stop feeding them now? There is no pollen or nectar coming in. I am afraid they are going to use up to much space for food stores and not enough for brood.

Yes stop feeding and inspect the top deep every so often to make sure they still have feed! When they run low since there isnt anything coming in at this time, then you can start to feed them again! Im doing the same thing to my 2 new hives! Good Luck!

I would stop feeding and add another box, med or something giving them more room. There is still plenty of nectar coming in here, sour wood is in full bloom and their still working white clover good here too. By fall they could possibly draw out another box and fill it too.
