Hey, all -
When should I put honey supers on? I've got one hive outside of Chicago, and two in SW Wisconsin (one weak, one strong).
The supers are mediums, Pierco, and haven't been drawn yet -- they're new. I'm running two deeps on the bottom.
Last year I didn't get any honey but I never went through the hives, not even once as my job took me to Atlanta for the year. I put two supers on to see what would happen and got nothing.
I've gone through the hives this year, switched boxes top to bottom, did two walkaway splits (fingers crossed) and took a frame of brood and nurse bees and put it in the weak hive to strengthen them.
Just don't know. Any help would be much appreciated.
