    Default Queen Cups?

    I removed a frame of drone brood today and noticed that it had eight queen cups (all were empty) - 4 on each side. Is there any significance to this?

    This hive had swarmed a few weeks back and is just now cranking away. I did see the queen, lots of eggs and no queen cells (that is a relief). Hopefully this is nothing to worry about.

    Theres always some queen cups in the hives at any given time....it only matters if they are loaded.
