My girls are still busy, but only getting about enough for maintenance. Just been to a garden which has a 'wild' area- about 1/4- 1/2 acre with lots of purple loosestrife and greater willowherb and some HB. Would it be worth taking the hive there in hopes of another super?

PS there are bees about there, so they wouldn't have it all to themselves.bee-smillie

I wouldn't recommend it, its almost time reduce the hive down to just a brood chamber and treat them. Also feed if required to ensure they have enough stores in the brood box to feed on for winter.
