I went to pull my super today, what a disaster.
First off I tried one of those bee escape things that pops into a inner cover, I wont use it again. I get out to the hive and the thing is buzzing, not in a good way either. I'm not sure if I seperated the queen from the rest of the hive or what but they were not happy.
I pull the super and look at what I thought was all capped honey, only to find some brood mixed in the very bottom of 6 frames. I changed my game plan, put a queen excluder on the hive and set the super back on top (making sure the queen wasn't up there).
I'll let them be for a while, let the brood hatch and then take the whole super.
I feel like a real rookie right now. Did I do the right thing leaving the super to let the brood hatch and hopefully they will cap the rest of the honey?
