Troutdog, Jim posted that in 2014. 2 years before Walt passed.

retsofmit:
Just curious, if you are doing this correctly and Walt's way, and thus prevent swarming and assuming you do not split as you have enough hives, how tall will a typical (I know I know) hive get?  Asking those of you who do this technique, not just those who have read about it.

Also, do what do you do in the summer when your population starts to decline during dearth?  Do you pull off supers and follow the bees down only to put them back on again in as the fall buildup starts again?

Thanks!
