Hi everyone, I live in Tampa, FL, USA and recently set up my flow hive. I bought a full hive of bees, transferred them into the brood box about three weeks ago. Within a couple of days, the girls had settled in comfortably and were actually working in the super, closing the gaps with wax. Now they are filling the combs with honey and after my first hive inspection everything seems to be going well with capped brood, pollen and nectar on all frames and the queen seems to be busy laying eggs. What I’ve noticed is that at night there are still a good number of bees huddled at the entrance and I’m wondering if this means they are crowded to the point they might swarm. As such I’d like your advice as to whether I should add a brood box and empty frames to the hive.
Thanks in advance.
