Got a queen I purchased for a queen less hive I had. Well I made a mistake and put some empty frames in the honey super and when the bees drew the comb out she laid in them. Brood box is full of capped brood and eggs. Read somewhere that queen with not a lot of room to lay will smell newly drawn comb and lay in it regardless of what box it is in. Well anyway I will let brood hatch but if I can keep her below and the bees refilled the brood comb in the super with honey is it ok to eat that honey? Or should I scrape comb off and have them start over once brood hatches.

We use all deeps, brood and extracting, and have found no difference in the honey from freshly drawn comb above an excluder, to that from former brood combs.

Use an excluder next time?
