Hi ...I have a new hive that seems like it is doing well. This hive has an 8 frame brood box that has only two frames of brood and the rest of the brood is in the the two supers that are on top of the brood box. There is honey in there as well just lots of brood in those supers. Now the brood box does not have much in it besides a frame or two of some brood (and not much) and a frame of honey. It is my understanding that the bees always work upwards. How can I get the queen to go back into the brood box and lay and not in my supers. I really do not want to use a queen excluder because I usually cannot find the queen. Any suggestions would be great. Reversing boxes? Let me know what you think.
