We have had a late spring here in Arkansas. The redbuds are just now blooming. The old timers say to put a super on when the redbuds bloom, but we haven't had but a good couple of weeks of flowering bushes, flowers, weeds, etc. and I really think that it is too early. When we moved our hives last weekend, they weren't none too heavy, so I know they aren't "full" of honey, brood, etc. In fact I still have had a feeder on them because we are still having some cool spells. So what is the opinion of you beekeepers out there in beekeeping land? I like to wait till they get their hive body full or almost full first - I still have two hives I want to split, and it doesn't look like I'll be doing that till about the end of the month?
