Building comb in supers

1241 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  dogsoldier13
Its my 2nd year and the girls are getting comb built up better than last. I have a few hives that are about 1/2 way built up and filled on the 2nd deep.
All my supers are just foundation or empty frames.
My question is, When should I add the supers due to no comb? Will the girls start building comb now saving time when they can put nectar in? I know what to do if there was comb built up but since they dont, should I add now or still wait till they fill another couple frames in the deep? :?:

What happens if you add a 2nd deep before the 8th or 9th frame is full? Is there harm in adding it too early?
I had 6-7 frames full before leaving for a 2 week vacation and added the 2nd deep prior to leaving.... any harm done?
