Thanks for the comments Chris. The frustrating aspect is that the brood is exactly what you would hope to see on a frame in the brood box. Lovely worker and capped brood. It is certainly not a laying worker! I have twice shaken bees down into the brood box but once again finding new perfect brood in super(s). I am going to re-queen now and allow time for the colony to build up as the present huge number of workers dies off over the coming weeks as they naturally will.
