Brood in the super...

on both of my Lang hives. I have one deep and a super right now trying to build them up. Do you need an excluder or just let em work it out?

I run all mediums and do not use excluders. During the spring build up she will lay in the 3rd medium for a while then when the strong flow hits they back fill the thrid medium and push her down to the lower two.

This is what I mostly see. I do have a couple that keep a bigger brood nest and continue to maintain brood in the third medium. I just let them decide what size brood nest they want.
