Every year that I keep bees I seem to see something new. This year a new first is a hive that is full of drone brood. The hive requeened itself back in April. I identified and marked the new queen a couple of weeks ago, placed her in the bottom deep, placed an excluder over that and added the second deep that had a lot of honey and a super. Now the whole hive is full of drone brood except there are three or four frames of worker brood that has some drone cells mixed in. I don't believe the queen is slipping above the excluder. I'm thinking that the hive is full of laying workers along with the queen. Unfortunately, they have used all their resources feeding 25 frames of drone brood. I pulled the upper two boxes, shook the bees out and will let the cold kill the drone brood. I'm not sure what else I can do other than watch and wait to see if the drone laying disappears as the queen establishes herself. It's going to be interesting to see.
