Sunday I added empty supers to Hive #6 and Hive #4 - my original plan was to take the top super off and put on the Nucs but my beekeeper friends didn't think that was such a good idea. The main reason being - it's too early. I need to keep feeding the nucs so they will continue to raise young bees. There's still plenty of time to add the supers before cold weather.
This is the inner cover for Hive #4 - you can actually see the lines where they had glued the top to the super.
Hive #6 has 4 supers and the brood box.
Hive #4 had 3 supers and a double brood box.
And I fed the nucs - a super will be added to Hive #1 later in the week. And I could have put the empty supers (well, I should have) in the middle of the hive but that would mean taking off the top two supers - couldn't do it - way to heavy. I'll wait for my helper friend. The bees can travel up to the top floor - none of this honey will be harvested so more bee tracks will not hurt a thing.
