  1. Really interesting that the bees do finally realize that they have more room for the honey. I like that gathering the honey doesn’t place a lot of stress on the bees.

That’s the reason for leaving them plenty – maybe 30+ lbs. – and then checking if any colony has an abundance, to spread it around more evenly if necessary.
