In one of my grafting frames, the bees just seem to be waxing everything as if to make comb. It looks like the queen cells are intact and they have not began to tear them down. I am to place them in nucs tomorrow and needed to find out how many boxes to prepare and took a peak today. Last week there was very nice queen cells started and now its not individual cells, but cells that are connected by comb.
Is this normal? I have grafted a good number of times and have never seen this? Is this just something that happens from time to time? Is it an indication of something? I would hate to throw them into nucs and find out later they are chilled and/or killed queen cells. Should I test with a light? Any advise? Thank you.
