For those who may not know, this is my first hive, I put the bees in around May 15th this year. I did an inspection of the hive today. The hive is doing amazing, 4 full frame of capped honey, good strong brood patterns with plenty of larvae on the remaining frames.
The bees seem to be working on the 3 center flow frames, I am now seeing a lot of bees towards the front viewing window of the hive and the flow frame box it self is nice and heavy.
Here is my dilemma, the daytime temperature has been hovering around 60 to 65° (18°C) on average if my math is correct.
Now the night time temperature has been around 40 to 45° on average and some times a little colder. I was going to remove the super and wrap the hive but the bees seem to be working very diligently on filling the frames.
During the day there is a lot of activity with foraging newbies doing their orientation flights.
So should I still remove the super or what until the daytime time temperature gets a little colder, the only reason I would leave the super on is to get honey for myself am I being selfish trying to push it.
The only thing I am not sure of is if the bees are replenishing what they are eating in the brood box.
