Hi, we are very new to beekeeping. We did a cut out of a possum box in early June and have basically left them to themselves over the winter. I havent put on the supers as yet as Ive been letting them settle themselves in over the winter. I was just wondering when I should start doing this and also I have some small sugar ants in the lid. I havent opened up the hive as its been too cold to see if they are in the hive.
Can I please have a little advice on how and when to proceed. Im in the Perth Hills.
Thanks for your help.
