    Frank,

    Are the capped cells on the sides of the frames or on the bottoms?
    Capped queen cells on side are superscedure cells. Capped queen cells on bottom are swarm cells. If they are superscedure cells I'd leave them alone.

    Burr comb should be removed between frames, but I'd wait until after they have hatched brood and after honey flow to do it. Just an opinion.

    they are on the sides of the frame i haven't looked on the bottom brood box but i checked on the 19 th on the top they pretty much combed the whole top brood box except 3 frames which they are cleaning the bees also seem to be building the brood nest also noticed a increase of guard bees at the entrance no sign of drones yet either queen on the way just in case
