I split a hive a few weeks ago that was making queen cells. I pulled the queen, and made a split. Now, in the parent hive, where there's a new queen and the majority of the bees (i just took 2 frames of brood and some bees for the split), the brood nest area is packed with pollen. Will they move the pollen around like they do honey? Making way for the brood nest? Or do i need to manipulate things?
Thanks

Honey bees don't move pollen the way they do nectar. It is up to you to move the frames full of pollen and place empty comb for the queen to lay in.
