My inspection yesterday introduced me to drone brood that I have not seen before. This is my first year of beekeeping and I have seen normal drone brood along the edges of the frame, but not occupying this amount of space. Check out the picture here.
I've read about drone laying queens, but notice all the good brood pattern on the same frame. There are an additional 10-12 frames with good worker brood in the two deeps. I have noticed an influx of lazy drones throughout the hive within recent weeks. There may be nothing wrong, but looking for some advice. Let it bee? Remove it to keep drone population low? No varroa mites have been spotted...remove the drone brood for pest management?
Thanks for any suggestions!!!!
