I hived my first package just over 7 weeks ago and have 2 deeps with 7 of the 10 frames on the bottom being used and the top has 5-6 of the 8 having the bees work at. the last 2 frames of the top box have a frame feeder in them.
the bottom box on the 8th frame has what appears to be queen cups on the lower portion of the frame. I could see at least 3 on that frame. The week before i didn't see these but when i look at a picture of that frame from then i can see the beginning of one.
I couldn't see any egg or larvae in the cells. should I be worried? I sighted eggs on some of the other frames in both boxes and larvae were abundant as well, so I would think that the queen is laying well.
Should i just keep an I out on the next inspection or is this a sign of things to come?
here is 2 pics of the frame
