So I noticed less than normal activity in one of my hives the last few days so I opened it up. I'm pretty sure the queen swarmed with a handful of bees (there are still 5-6 full frames worth of bees at least during the middle of the day) and I've found 5 queen cells. I can't tell the difference between ones that might be in the act of being capped and ones that might have been broken into and killed. I assume since most of the openings and partial openings are at the bottom of the cell that they are in the act of being capped. I don't feel comfortable cutting out the "extra" cells and leaving one since I don't really know what I am doing at all. I'm concerned that they will all hatch and Ill end up with no queen at all. Any help? Is it normal for a queen cell in the act of being capped so have the cap formed and attached at on point like the lid of a bottle being closed? Anyway, 3 of the 5 seem to be full capped and whole. How long until they hatch? Should I just bight the bullet and go back in tomorrow and cut out all but one???? Help!
