Wintering mistake – advice needed
This is my first time going into winter here in Australia. Self taught with what I know to date via this sub, google, youtube etc. I may have made a mistake. I removed 1 honey super off each hive and removed the queen excluders. The remaining supers are 3/4 full of honey so no issue with compressing or enough honey for winter. However, I’m now being told removing the excluders is not required as we dont freeze here.
How can I reinstall the queen excluders without having to physically see the queen to make sure she is down in the brood box?
Your advice is appreciated.
