    Default Spring explosion

    This spring has been crazy. I got behind and now theres pollen and honey all over the brood nest. I'm now finding Q cups w eggs in nearly all hives. Frantically trying to locate Queens and split.

    I've had supers on for nearly two weeks. How do I unplug the brood best once it's already crowded? Just replace frames? Put the others in my splits?

    Add empty frames, maybe even add another brood box, and checkerboard both brood boxes with empty frames (drawn would be ideal, but we don't all have empty, DRAWN frames laying around)
