Treatment help

First year beekeeper based in the US looking for some advice. I did a mite check today and am above 2%. When I extracted and put the supers back on instead of taking it back to the brood nest they redistributed it in the supers and started adding more. Now I have almost all frames with some uncapped honey in it. I plan on treating with formic pro. My questions are should I leave the supers on when I treat? 14 day or 20 day treatment? How do I get them to take the honey down? I’d like to over winter with just two deeps and I don’t have the freezer space for 4 supers. Is there anything I’m not thinking of?
