We still have a couple of weeks till things really start to bloom and my one colony seems awfully light. I won't be here to feed them for the next 6-8 weeks, but I do have four frames that are 50-75% filled and mostly capped in the freezer that I saved for just such an occasion.
Instead of pulling frames from the deep brood chamber and putting the shallower frames in (and disrupting a lot of bees on a 45 degree day), is it safe to add a super with the honey-filled frames this early in the year? I suppose I'm concerned with having too much space for the bees to keep warm. We can still get some cold weather in April.
Of course I'll thaw the frames of honey, but does anyone have any thoughts on this?
