Adding 2nd Super!

It’s always an exciting day when you can add a second Super. It means the hive is doing well, and most importantly it moves you closer to being able to harvest honey!

Here, Cam is installing the second Super with empty frames. It will likely take the hive a month to fill this Super as they first must build the comb and then fill with honey and brood (eggs).

Remember this second Super will be for the bees and not for human consumption since we haven’t added the Queen excluder yet. That comes next.
