    Yesterday I added my first super to my first hive. I put it between the two deep boxes to encourage the bees to get to work on it (as recommended to me by other local beekeepers). I'm wondering if many people do that and if so about how long would you expect before I move the super above the deeps? We seem to be having a great summer for bees here in Ohio, as most everyone I've talked to with new hives have already added supers.

    I would move it to the top when there is drawn comb on a couple of frames. Likely about a week.
