I did an inspection of the top deeps (lots of bees) and discovered about 50 lbs of honey and sugar syrup (capped) still left in each hive. .
It is alot. 50 lbs is equal full Langstroth box.
I looked your foeracast. You have water rains and snow rain. Spings is just coming. You have no hurry to so anything. Bees start to raise brood when they get pollen. Is it willow which starts first or...
When weather is good, take most capped frames away and store them. If bees are possible to put into one box do it. Rewersing is worst you can do now.
It takes over month untill new bees start to emerge and 1,5 monht untill you need consider new room for new bees. Wintered bees will die all when new ones begin to fly.
Should I remove this to make room for brood?
Should I reverse the deeps? There really is no room in those top deeps for brood rearing. I fed them well in the fall.[/quote]
