For the winter i have always left the brood boxes alone, the bottom box will almost always be empty except for pollen stores. The upper box will have stores and brood, the top med super is full of honey, this is on a 2 deep and 1 med. super set up.For the last few years, i've had trouble with wax moth moving in the bottom box, never had this problem before.I have started going to 1 deep and 2 med. for a hive set up that has worked better, and i have some 3 med. supers for a hive set up that works well.My bees are Mutts, but i usually buy Carniolan queens which makes them winter with a smaller cluster, so that could led to some of my moth problem? I like the 2 deep and 1 med. set up better, for it's quick ability to build up fast come spring.My question is,how do you cope with the wax moth and shb that we now have, for a hive set up for winter?:???: Jack PS. I would like just a 2 deep hive for winter, but after i take the honey supers off, they don't have enough time or foliage to build up stores for winter.
