Queen Excluder = Honey Excluder
I always hear that a Queen Excluder equals a Honey Excluder. Could someone who believes/knows this to be true give a little more color on the subject? Wouldn't the honey "excluded" from the super end up in the hive body? In other words, do you believe that the total amount of honey in the hive will be the same or less with a queen excluder installed? Or. is the concern that the bees will become honey-bound (with a near-empty super above the excluder) and swarm?
