I am in central Ohio and have 2 new hives that are filling their first honey supers on top of 2 - 8 frame deeps. When do you remove, or how do you know when to take the honey supers off and let the bees prepared for winter?
They both were full of bees and capped honey when I put on the supers. One had close to 6 frames of capped deeps and the other had 4. They also had capped stores in the tops of the brood frames. They have had a good source of white sweet clover all spring but that has faded. I have shallow honey supers and one hive has capped 2 frames and the other has one. They are drawing most of the frames in the super.
