Re: Beginner mistake with laying workers?
Yes, what Benjamin said. Also, don't worry about the "supersedure cells", they will have drones in them and will not survive long enough to hatch. If it's got a drone laying queen you'll need to find and kill her before doing the combine, if it's laying workers go ahead and do the combine using newspaper plus a queen excluder between, the excluder is to stop the queen wandering down into a crowd of unfriendly bees before they have accepted her.
3 weeks after the combine remove the excluder.
