i would not suggest this. the bees are making drone brood becasue they want them. by the time the drone brood is capped, there is a huge investment in them. scrapping them will simply make the bees want to make more drone brood...invest all over again. if not in the supers (where the comb is relatively new, and easy to rework into drone cells), then between the boxes, in burr comb, etc).
the bees are making drones for a reason. they will continue making drones for the same reason until they think they have enough. drones are expensive to make (which is why bees make them in times of plenty).
Hi,People are upset because I didn't answer your question and was more concerned about if you have laying workers. So, I will say,If they are full of drone brood and not much honey,throw it all away if you like or cut the brood out and throw it and you can put the honey back in or squeeze it. If I was sure I had a queen by seeing the queen or tight laid new eggs that only had one egg in a cell,I would be fine but tight capped brood don't tell me I have a queen.
I don't know everything but I don't speak what i'm not sure of.
