Let me start by saying I've done my first graft last week, mostly just for the learning experience. I grafted 15 larvae and about 7 of them were built out. I figure that isnt too bad, cause i know i didnt figure out how to move them with the chinese grafting tool til i did about 5 of them.
Anyway, my question is, is it common for the bees to start to build full combs off the queen cells? They did this to several of mine. I dont think the queen would be able to get out, since they started right from the bottom tip of the cell where she would emerge. At first I thought maybe there wasnt a queen in it, but I opened one to check, and it was a developing pupa. How do I prevent this from happening in the future? And should i trim the comb off the ones i have, or are they no good?
