After a slow start this spring, the bees have been getting down to some serious work. They filled the three boxes that were on the hive really quickly, which caused me to nadir a fourth box about 3 weeks ago. I have just been down to check on their progress and they are now already half way down into the fourth box.
This leaves me with a question of what is the best course of action is from here. Do I just let them continue building down into the base box, with all its consequences, or do I add another box (which would be the sixth box on the hive)? How many boxes can you safely add to a Warre?
The fact they are filling a whole box and already starting on a new one in only 3 weeks makes me think they are going to start to run out of room some time over the summer. What then?
Any words of wisdom, support, help would be greatly appreciated.
