Queen excluder and how bees work...
I need some help. I understand how to use the QE and when to put it on. What I don't understand is how you keep brood out of the honey supers if you wish not to use it.
This will be my first year, so the bees will put pollen, brood AND honey in my first deep right? After that is drawn out 8-9/10 frames, I will put on my medium super. Now, what happens at this point? Do they put brood, pollen and honey into that as well? I, just confused at the process. When do they STOP putting brood in and start storing ONLY honey?
