I'm asking this for my bee-keepers in the family. We have 4 hives, all four have 2 deeps and 1 super installed. One of the hives swarmed, but we got 'em back and their going great guns in a formerly queenless hive. This is May.... The nectar is flowing, and we have 10 acres of clover - alfalfa - buckwheat just starting to sprout. When this stuff comes into bloom, I'm guessing they're gonna be filling up supers like crazy, right? What would be a good number of extra supers per hive to have on-hand? I was thinking/planning 2 more per hive, and at least one extra hive for swarms, or as a bare minimum a nuc? Another question... Summer is just around the corner, and it's already kinda dry. We've noticed bees in places where water is, but it's several hundred yards from the hives - this is on hot days (+85f). Can someone recommend some kind of water fountian or watering station that's minimal maintenance for bee keeping? By coincidence, I'm running an underground water line about 100' past the hives, so I could easily tap into it for a little do-dad-watering-thing.
