There is two main reason to check the hive: swarming and space enough for honey.
In Finland bees swarm in June. The biggest reason for is that there is a 2 weeks gab in blooming, bees are without work and they swarm. Hives must be shecked every week. Time table comes from development of quuen cells.
When yield starts, I know from weather and from the blooming time of flowers, is honey coming or not. I put so much space, that they can put at least one week honey inside. If their space is full, bees can swarm quite soon.
When honey is capped, there is no use to keep it in the hive. It is better that bees have empty space, so they gather honey and they do not give in their heads that hive is full.
If bees have brood and queen cells, they gather honey as well as without queen. In Finland we often take queen away before mainblooming. So bees have nothing to do but gather honey. They have no larvas what to feed.
When you are beginner, it is most important to learn, how colony react at blooming, weather, season so on.
The skill of beekeeping is, that you know alternatives what bees are going to do next and you try to lead them according your mind.
Most beginners unsucceed in beekeeping, because they do not check they hives often enough to learn bees natural life cycle.
