    Default Cloake Board & moving brood

    Was just wanting to know if it would be ok to leave capped brood in the upper box with your grafts,one thing that is a pain when using a cloake board is emptying the top brood box of brood and finding a place for it. I thought that it wouldn't hurt anything as long as it is all capped but I am not for sure

    I think you should be fine the nurse bees don't need to do anything to capped brood and when the brood emerges you got more nurse bees.

    I leave the capped brood, but they always seem to find some thing to make extra queen cells from, make sure and check at some point for extra queen cells.
