We are grateful you are here

Do I have enough honey or should I add supplementation? Also, should I insulate hive?

I have a deep 10 frame brood box topped with a deep honey box on top (its full and about 80% of it is capped). Do I need to add supplementation for the winter? I'm in bay area, california and the lowest temps we see are about 2 weeks of nighttime temps in the low 30s in Dec/Jan.

Btw, the reason the second deep box is full of honey is because my novice self added the queen excluder before adding the second deep. The honey excluder was removed this month so they could access the food.

Additionally, should I add a wool cover to the box to help them insulate or is that not necessary in my climate?
