My question is, do I leave the super on now for winter honey stores and put it back early spring, take it off soon to compact them, in which case would they have enough without the flow honey? Just leave them all be for now? It’s a lovely foraging day in Adelaide today, with sunshine no wind, there’s been rain recently and rain expected the rest of the week.
Last week I checked the flow frames and there was a lot less honey then than today, but all the observation windows show nothing as they are avoiding the sides and that end at the moment.
Also should I put mesh in the hole in the roof or keep it closed for winter? There was moisture inside the top board and I presume evaporating the nectar is making more moisture and there is mould in the bottom tray in the front section (flow 2).
