I put a second honey super on my first year hive this week because the first is 80% full and capped.
Was I right to add a second super of undrawn frames, or should I be trying to slow them down in preparation for winter?
I'm not experienced enough to tell if/when we have a flow or dearth on. All I know is they have been steadily filling the first super, and putting a bit more than I'd like down below.
Will they have time to draw and fill the second super before they should be concentrating on winter storage and winter brood rearing.
Seems like a pretty strong hie overall. Lots of bees, and stores.
