Starting with two nucs. Supposed to get them in early May. Figured once I had the jig set up for the boxes, might as well make a few more. So might want to think along the lines of 6 more suppers. Two of which could serve as space for brood.

Thanks for the info.

number of hive bodies?

Just went through the last class and I have built two hive bodies, one brood and one med. super each. After reading many of the posts I am wondering if I ought build a couple of "extra" broods and supers just in case things go well.

What is a reasonable backup?
