Hybrid hive / colony maintenance

The Hybrid gives beekeepers the advantage of being able to manage their colony by rotating frames between the brood box and the super. This can be beneficial for keeping your worker population strong and can also help with winter preparations or encouraging the bees into the super for quicker uptake.

If you notice a strong honey flow, and your bees are busy filling frames, you might want to consider storing traditional frames outside of the hive for winter feeding. To do this you will need extra traditional frames to replace for the ones you have removed.
