Re: Two hives has queen laying in honey super.
You can't. Well, actually you can if you kill her. That kinda defeats the purpose though. The bees do not recognize that box as as having a different purpose. If you put the super below the brood box, the bees will move the honey up. Best action is to shake all the bees off the super frames, install the queen excluder, and put all the frames back in the box in the same order you took them out. The queen will be in the bottom box and the bees will take care of the brood still in the super. I just did this with all my hives in preparation for the flow.
