    Put an excluder on, another super with a few frames of brood and honey. Make absolutely sure there are no queens on the frames in the top super, no matter what you saw in the lower supers. I banked several dozen up until April 30th when I used them.

    Thanks, I will give it a try. I was planning to cut-out a hive this week but I have had other commitments to arise and will not be able to. I have two caged queens that I have put into introduction frames.
