a super has frames full of capped honey can that super be removed for extraction then placed back on the same day
from more experienced beekeepers.
I have 40 years experience, if it something means.
You can exract honey and put aften a second the supers back. No matter.
But it is usefull to extract several supers in one time, because you need a lot of honey to grease your exctractor and sieves. It is not cheap at all. If you get 30 lbs honey from one super, 30% stays on the surfaces of extraction process. 20 % of honey is in uncapping wax.
Good hive has 2-3 brood boxes and 4-6 supers. 5 box hive is not effective to collect honey. 6-7 is more handy. If you have small hive, you must all the time be charp with free space in hive. Hive needs all the time 1-2 empty box for new honey. In good honey flow 2 supers are full during one week.
If hive is 4 boxes, it fulls space very quiclky, then it turs lazy and beging to think swarming. Most of beekeepers do that way. - To look every day to hives, - no use! It helps nothing.
When I keep my hive on canola field, I use extra brood chamber lowest. Then I have 4-5 supers, and boxes will be full in a week.
If you have 2 box hive on canola field, it will swarm after a week, because it becomes really full. Also firelower gives honey often as much.
