    Default Drone comb and honey

    My hive swarmed this spring and I have to bars of drone comb that is being filled back with honey. Should I cut the comb out and let them build back worker comb, let them seal the honey and harvest it or let them seal it and leave it for the winter?

    They'll build worker comb if and when they need it. I'd let them use the drone comb however they want.
