Re: Hello from a new beekeeper and forum member
Welcome to the forum and bee addiction. My bees worked the honey super the same day I took off the excluder. Later let us know if the queen moves up and starts laying there and we can tell ya how to take care of that also. Common question for this time of year, or a little earlier in the session.
Queen excluders are somewhat of an advanced piece of equipment in terms of how they are used. Everyone has an opinion about them as well.
Try living life with the attitude it's not about what you want to do but what you should do!
