This may sound like a real newbee question and thats because it is! How do you know its time to put on a honey super vs. another super for population increases? I mean when you apply a super, do the bees make the decision as to what goes in it? How do you/they know its time to put honey in it? Do you use a queen excluder to keep eggs from being layed there and hope they put honey in it? And if you use a queen excluder do you always use one when you are trying to get honey? Are there any signs that tell you its time to put on a honey super? I know they are probably very elementary questions, but I've never seen the answers.:scratch: Thank you in advance for any answers!
