I've just done my inspection and removed all the sealed drone brood from below the super frame in the brood chamber.

Should I leave it outside the hive for the bees to take back in what they want, or dispose of it?

Never leave comb, brace comb, bits of wax, spilled syrup or anything bee connected in the vicinity of your hives :boxing_smiley:. Doing so is the easiest way to start robbings :(.
This time of year , when income is slowing ,is about the worst time for these sloppy practices !!
I make no apologies for stamping home these facts, considering that the robbing isn't necessarily confined to one apiary !!
