I have Ross Rounds. Placed them on top of 2 Supers. How do I know hen the Ross rounds are full and how long does it take. All advise is welcome.

I would check them weekly and pull each frame as it fills and freeze it. Replace it with a partial from another hive or an empty. I would also remove any other honey supers and only leave the brood boxes an ross box.

I like what iddee said about pulling any ross rounds as they become capped and freezing.  Keep your comb honey frames on top so the bees don't walk all over the wax constantly.  That will keep the comb looking much nicer.
