I made up five or so nucs and introduced queens to them. I ended up with one that just exploded in population. I opened it up yesterday and all five frames were covered in bees and it had 3 full frames solid with brood. I was concerned that the population would simply be to much and that I may end up with a fall swarm. I pulled two of the three frames of brood and replaced them with empty comb.

My question is what do I do with the other brood? Is it too late in the season to have them raise their own queen and start another nuc? Should I just put it in another hive? Seems like a waste to put two beautiful frames of brood in a hive that will shortly be culling their numbers.

Any advice appreciated.
