Scenario: About four weeks ago, I put a bought queen in a hive that had been queenless for some time. When I recently checked, she had layed a nice brood pattern on two frames. All the worker brood was capped and she was walking about apparently healthy. In the two frames of brood were a couple of, what appears, meakly looking emergency queen cells. There was no open brood except for a few drone cells that had not been capped yet. Did this queen stop laying because she is sick? Are the emergency queen cells an indication that this queen is done for or should I give her more time to start laying again?
Your kind advice is appreciated.
