In one of my two hives the queen just stopped laying, workers made about 4 queen cells in about 10 days,which I cut out, then the original queen started laying again. There is no capped brood but as of today, lots of larvae in various stages and eggs- in a good brood pattern? Maybe these were swarm cells? and the workers quit feeding the queen to stop her from laying? I did add another super of foundation last week?
