    What it takes to suppress the laying workers is open brood. I'd make a frame and cut out a frame of open brood and tie it into the frame. After a week of being exposed to open brood the odds of them accepting a queen are improved greatly. If you can repeat adding brood three times it's almost guaranteed to straighten things out.
