After a 30 plus year absence from the hobby I am getting back into bee keeping - got three hives set up and occupied yesterday.
A lot has changed in the hobby since I last had hives.
1) What routine medical maintenance do you perform if any? When do you perform this feeding of medical treatments?
2) What routine feeding do you perform or recommend?
I plan to use a deep hive body for the brood chamber and a medium super above this for food storage, taking off only from any additional supers placed above this.
Next year I will analyze the results from the medium super and if it looks like I should be using a deep hive body for a food storage then I will go with that idea at that time. So - what is the common size food storage box do you use?
Any comments, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
