I was wondering how many of you choose to use a queen excluder and if not, how do you harvest honey with brood?

We choose to use a queen excluder. Here is a link, however, with some suggestions for keeping the queen from laying eggs in the supers without using an excluder: http://www.honeybeesuite.com/the-queen-excluder-controversy-some-things-never-change/

Hope this helps!
