extra queens in a hive
« on: July 03, 2019, 07:27:47 pm »
I was checking my honey supers and found one of them was full of capped brood. It was above a queen excluder with a top entrance  above the inner cover. I looked into the double deeps below and there was brood down there too so I split it and added a new honey super. That's the first time I've had that happen. :D

I don't know.It was like that when I got here.

It happened to me once, last year i think, and twice this year.  Eggs above and below the excluder.  Strange.
Share that which you have an abundance of.  In doing so both the giver and receiver are enriched.
