Flowhive Super Problem?

Hi I have eggs larvae capped brood nectar in my 7 frame Flowhive Super . I am not sure what to do. A Queen Excluder above the brood box may have been nudged allowing the Queen to enter the Super.

Hello,

Find the queen and put her downstairs with the excluder (well positioned or a new one), let the bees from the super emerge before even considering harvest (min 24 days because they are likely drones). You might consider a upper entrance to let the drones get out so they don’t get trapped by the excluder.

There have been a number of messages about how to clean the cocoons out of the super but I’m not sure there is a consensus that this has to be done straight away.
