Hi, Could someone please take a look at the photos attached and advise whether I should add my super?
The hive was started in Dec 2018 however wasn’t flourishing (very hot during this time, little flowers present) and so I was advised to remove the super; which I did.
A recent inspection showed progress (enough?) particularly on eastern frames, so wondering whether to put the super on? The hive is located within a small citrus orchard and so there will be plenty of flowers in spring. I have read that bees typically swarm in July/August so concerned they might depart if they don’t have enough space.
BTW Just found can only add one image, so have chosen western side (the least full frame).
