Accept that the bees don't mind if you use supers in the brood area and brood boxes above a queen excluder. Ultimately if they need space just use what you've got.

Try raising your own queens. Start with either harvesting queen cells from a colony attempting to swarm to make up nucs or make walk away splits. Either way, have a go.
