I'm a new beek beginning my second year, so I was blown away when I opened the hives today. I didn't have this many bees all summer last year, and it's only February! My 8-frame hive was was so packed, I couldn't count the frames. I have over-wintered them with two deeps and one medium super of honey. I have not fed them at all since last summer. When I pulled the super off, there was drone comb between the boxes that got ripped open. All three boxes were as packed as this picture. I added another super with 8 frames of foundation. The wind was blowing and they were in a pissy mood, so I didn't look for swarm cells. Is this many bees normal for February, or are they over-crowded? My second hive is a 10-frame. It was healthy too, but not as packed as the 8-frame. It is only two deeps. I didn't have a super ready, so I pulled two frames of honey out and replaced with two new frames of foundation.
