:? Well, darn it, I put a honey super on my strongest hive two weeks ago. I looked in on the top brood box and it seemed to have adequate stores to keep the queen from crossing, so I didn't use a queen excluder. Two days ago, I checked in on them to see how much they'd drawn out the comb. I found brood in early stages on two of the center frames. Didn't look much further.
Now what? It's a medium super with wired foundation for extracting. My hive bodies are all deeps.
My initial thought is to tear apart the super, find the queen if she's up there, move her down (where her highness SHOULD be :evil: ) and put on a queen excluder. Once the brood matures, will the workers fill the cells with usable honey?
Thanks! Appreciate your help!
