Last year we had a terrible winter and my bees died. I intended to install a new package this spring and by mid summer install a second brood box. My delivery of bees was significantly delayed untill nearly mid summer and they are just now really active and making lots of honey. My question is:
Is it too late in season to add a second brood box.
Regardless of the second box I am intending to move the hive closer to my home over winter and hoping to use some heating strips under the hive to keep the hive dry and warmer over this winter.
Any input is appreciated.
