Do the bees get lazy if you leave full supers on? What I mean by leaving them on is to have the full ones on the top with empties below.

Some people think so and others don't. Some say that if you take the honey off as it is produced and put the wet empty supers back on the bees will make more honey.

I have a feeling that they work harder and produce more if they know they need more.

No scientific evidence, just my gut feeling.
