Queen in super
« on: May 01, 2011, 11:14:12 AM »
I started keeping bees 2 years ago.  Bees did great and are still doing great ..except..here's the part.  I decided to add another super this year to the 2 hives that are doing good.  so now i have 2 brood and 2 super boxes on each hive.  I decided to check in on them the other day and i have brood in my supers now.  and they aren't using the bottom brood box, on either hive.  Also i started 2 more hives with 4 lbs of bees each and queen.  And im just using 1 brood box for them right now, should i add a super to them?  They have been in there 2 weeks and are already drawing the comb and producing honey.  Thought i would share that last part cause it seemed really fast.

when it comes to how many, and when, with supers and brood boxes, we really need to know where you are.  in your profile you can put your location.  that way the info you get will be better for you.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
