Remove/start extracting any capped frames. If you have any cut comb frames, put them in the freezer for 24 hours to kill any possibility of wax moth.

While removing supers remember to leave sufficient stores for your bees to carry them through the winter.

And varroa again – you have an idea from a couple of weeks ago of how big a problem you have. Research the options and decide on the treatment you will use once all your supers are off. Don’t be complacent and think you don’t have any varroa as you most certainly will at some level!
