    Default Two Larvae in a cell. Laying worker @ work....

    I discovered that one of my nucs had a laying worker issue. Some eggs were attached to cell walls, some had multiple eggs.

    I was able to get this photo with my Android:

    I've seen queens do the same thing. Multiple larvae, larva/egg in the same cell.
