Searched for anything on this but didn't see anything...
Newbee mistake, I know... Last fall I left on a honey super that was about 2/3 full of honey, fearing that if I took it I'd wreck the hive's chances of wintering over. They have done fine, and looked great today during my first inspection, but, as I had been warned, the super is now honey-less and nicely filled with brood... Too late for the queen excluder that I got for the occasion.
Could someone advise me of how to proceed from here? I have two deeps under the super. I didn't do a complete inspection, but I imagine that the lowest deep must be uninhabited if the cluster is all the way up at the top of the hive.
Thanks in advance!
