    Question Dark spots in honey super cells

    Harvested four frames and noticed dark spots in some of the cells. I have a queen excluder, so I wouldn't think these spots are brood. So what would it be? Vermin? :/

    Ah, bee bread. I've heard of that but didn't know what it was. Should I gouge it out and enjoy? Is leaving it in and returning to the hive OK?

    It takes a lot to make a loaf, so not worth gouging it out. Just return it and they will know what to do with it. J
