When to super
« on: February 11, 2014, 09:20:49 PM »
I am trying to run 2 deep broodnest....looks like they have most of the frames drawn out in both deeps....might be one or two frames to go. Should I put a super on it now?  Central FL....bees are bringing in white and orange pollen...lots of it.  Foundationless frames.

They have the 2 deeps nearly drawn out, how much of the frames have honey or pollen.  I am farther north by a ways, but if not yet, you can soon put a super on.  Depending on your weather you probably could go ahead.
