Upon inspection I noticed some capped drone brood on a few frames of a two deep hive (I have a honey super on as well). My queen is new and healthy, as she is still laying quite a bit late in the summer and the brood patterns are perfect. I did see her during this same inspection and saw quite a few fresh eggs/brood.
Has any one experienced drone comb/brood this late in the season and what does this mean?
It is worth noting that I live in Northern CA
