I am anxious about my queens moving up to the supers where some very nice comb honey is being drawn. I have read several threads about excluder or no excluder and really have no better stance on it now than when I began. However, I found this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfRzH7i5UqY) from the Fat Bee Man that discusses a few things I haven't read about yet. First, a 50% reduction in life of bees from damaged wings going back and forth through the excluder and second, a 15-18 inch range upward for the queen. If this makes since to more of you I may consider moving all of my comb honey to the second super and leave all the drawn frames in the first super. If the queens decide they need a little more room, maybe they will stop in the first super?? I will just add more supers above the second. I use two deep brood boxes on each of my hives and currently have no queen activity in my medium supers.
