I live in New England and have Carni's. I was concerned about them swarming so I put a super on both hives. It has been 3 weeks and I do not see any drawn wax comb on the new supers. The two large hive bodies below ( I have two deep and one med super on the hive) have some drawn comb but only a small about of brood and capped honey on each frame. I know now that I was too quick to put the extra supers on. Should I remove them at this point or just keep them on and wait for the buildup ? J
