I have a hive that lost its queen over the winter and aparantly had laying workers- saw drone cells capped but no other brood or eggs of any kind. I took two frames from my good hive with capped brood, open brood and eggs and gave it to them about two weeks ago. Went in today and found a queen cell, supercedure kind built with something in it. Had a hole in it. It looked like some kind of fibrous stuff in there, like a cap over the inside. Is this the queen about to emerge?
