I have the standard double deep set ups. Rotated the deeps in the Spring and as the colony grew added two supers.
I went to open the hive last week, and the lower super is completely full of capped brood. Really pretty capped brood in very new cells - so it looks like honey, but is too light in weight and is brood. Did not use queen excluders, as last year the colony behaved well and kept the brood low and the honey high.
How to I correct this problem? One good thing is when all this brood hatches this will be a huge hive, at the very right time in the season.
Add another super and let them sort it out? Shake out all the bees low and add an excluder?
