Hi. Second year beek here. I have read that you should add another super when they start capping the honey in the existing super. We have 1 medium honey super on each hive and the bees seem to be collecting necar like mad but nothing is capped. Both hives seem to be quite full of bees. We are leaving town for a week and wonder if we should add a nother super before we go. What woould hapen if we add supers before they start capping? Would that be ok? Thanks.

I would go ahead and add the supers for insurance.
