Today I had my helper with me again. We did a routine inspection and found that the girls were bringing in a good amount of honey and filling in most of the new comb they had drawn on the added super. The term "super" usually refers to a box of fresh frames or drawn comb that is added to a hive during a honey flow in order to give the bees storage space to support the rapid influx of nectar. Supers can be medium or deep boxes and have no physical difference to a regular Langstroth hive boxes other than the name used to reference its use.
