I’ve been reading and from what everyone says is that the first year of a hive you should not take any honey.
My last hive inspection on 8/11/18 shows all my honey supers capped. (See picture). I have two Langstroth hives with 2 deeps and 1 super on each. My flow hive was late in arriving this year and the bee’s are still busy filling the frames, I don’t have the flow frames on, just two deeps.
I’m confused as to what to do with the honey supers, both hives deeps are full of brood and stores. Do I leave the supers on all winter for food?
I’ve been treating for mites and counts are very low. Next mite treatment will be mid Sept/Oct after I do my sugar roll/count.
All hives are full of happy bee’s and stores.
Any advice would be great!
