I have some full honey frames capped over lithesome drone brood at the bottom. How do I get rid of it before uncapping?
If I scrape it off there will be remnants of larvae

You could wait until they emerge before extracting. As far as scraping goes, a little extra protein never hurt anyone.

You could use the capping lifter to uncap the honey cells if the drone is not too interspersed with it. Otherwise wait ~2 weeks for the drones to emerge.

I presently have three 10 frame deeps that I am waiting for remaining brood to emerge.

Re: Some Drone Bood

Have quite a few frames with limited drone brood and I also noticed some frames with limited regular capped brood in small areas. Removed about 10 supers with fully capped honey and where possible I left the frames with drone and regular or worker capped brood. Crofter your suggestions about 2 weeks millwork for me.
