    Default Latest Hive Inspection. Lack of brood.

    Hi everybody. I have a new top bar hive. Last week I put a top bar nuc in it. They've got six bars filled and are working on a seventh. I'm not seeing any capped brood. Maybe a couple of drone cells. I thought I saw single eggs in the comb two days ago, but nothing capped this time either. Any suggestions on what I should do. Bees are still foraging. There is lots of honey in the cells. This is just capped honey and not brood in the picture right? Attachment 2007

    I see a lot of empty cells. Check them to see if there are eggs or larvae in them. It takes eight days to cap them from when the eggs were laid.
