Ready for the super

Just wondering if this is a sign of an overflowing hive and time for the super.
Any help appreciated.

best picture would be what’s happening inside, but given the time of year and location, now is a good time. also you’ll need to start looking for signs of swarming.

to prepare the flow frames, rub a bit of wax (bur comb) onto the cells to encourage the bees to explore.

The other thing too is with the temperature going up, bees will be bearding. This was taken before my inspection today:
