Just curious what others are doing. I go back and forth on this. Honey excluder or queen excluder? Last year I had almost no problems with the queen moving up. This year I have over a thousand supers with a substantial amount of brood in them and I'm not going to exctract the brood thank you very much. The brood will eventually hatch but I wanted to extract this earlier, lighter honey a couple of weeks ago not later when darker honey is being brought in.
Anyway, messing with brood is extremely time consuming. I want white comb in my honey supers not dark comb - less problems with wax moths and hopefully better honey?? What's the consensus among y'all?
