    That's very interesting and obviously proving true here. Our bee school teacher told us not to use a queen excluder because it's also called a "honey excluder" because it's more difficult to get to for the workers. However, I have burrholes in the front of each box and they seem to use that instead of the main hive entrance, so perhaps it will work. I don't have enough workers in the hive for a swarm, maybe soon though. It took a long time for that hive to regain strength after the long winter. I cleaned out piles and piles of bees this spring.
    Do you use foundation?
    I'm not sure we have goldenrod here, but I was warned about the smell (dirty gym socks) from the books I read. Hopefully I don't experience that.
