I had a quick question. Would it be possible to build a super hive? By which I mean say you had 4 or 5 hives and you stole a frame or two from each to strengthen another hive throughout the spring. Would said hive produce exceptional honey yields, given good forage of course, or would it be nothing but a super swarm producer? Everyone keeps saying that 1 really strong hive will produce significantly more honey than 2 weak hives. This would seem like an excellent way to do that and in late summer or fall could be split 2 or 3 ways. It shouldn't be all that detrimental to the dolor hives either since you would spread out the load.
Just brain storming. What does everyone thing?
