If they are making honey leave them be.(larve on the base) probably just drone brood on the bootom of the frame,are they plastic frames Wink Do you have drawn frames for your honey supper if so I would checker board the two suppers as best you can -empty full empty full and so on,  If you have foundation that needs to be drawn out i would wet supper the box of undrawn foundation.(by that i mean place it under the supper they are working next to brood chamber) hope this helps            you didnt mention if you are running a excluder i am asuming you are cool RDY-B

i am not using an excluder at this time.the two old guys who had helped me out a few years ago
hated them and i've followed their advice.they two guys are gone now
