I have about a inch of drone brood on a few of my honey supers frames. how can i extract the honey with the drone brood there? I was thinking about to scratch the drone brood and place them back in to let the bees clean them out before I extract.

let the honey settle and the brood will rise to the top.  it happens all the time.

If it's only a little bit an uncapping fork works well to just pull them out.  If it's a lot I just put them back on the hives.

I had something like that last year. Just didn't uncap the brood cells when we put the frames in the extractor. They stayed intact while the honey came out. It's creepy, though. But it works.

And when they come out of their cells they act all wobbly and crazy drunk for hours.... it is fun for the whole family, really. Wink

We just let them sleep it off.
