Newbie here. Bought a full flow hive. In MI, USA so a few months before I buy my nuc. I’d like to harvest honey but mainly I want bees for pollination and for fun. I’m trying to roughly outline my upcoming year , please help me fill in the gaps.
So I install my nuc in the brood box. Initially I will top feed (how long?). I wait for the brood box to be pretty well full before adding the excluder and flow super. I at some point harvest and it’s awesome. Then I decide at some point that they need the rest of the honey for overwintering. Winters here are pretty cold. I swap out the flow frames for regular frames because flow frames shouldn’t over winter (yes?)(or do I add another regular super and just remove the flow super before winter?).
Thanks for the help!
