Here is the problem. I have never used a queen excluder in the past. I started a DE Hive last year. The foundation that comes with the shallow supers is drone size. Last year the queen started laying in the super. I tried to remove it last fall but the bees would not leave and they needed the honey that was in it to get through this winter. Now they are up in that super and I am sure the queen is laying by now. I am feeding them now and it will be in the mid-fifties the next few days. Should I:
1)Close the upper entrance and leave it where it is.
2)Move it to the bottom of the deep supers.
3)Go in and shake the bees out into the deep supers.
