What's going on with our hives?
Okay so my husband and I whom are relatively new to beekeeping went out to the yard to do extensive inspections of our hives, we have found several queen cells on quite a few hives, and we have no idea why. We just got started this year isn't it too late for new queens? Our hives that we find the most in are strong laying, new to this year, queens. All of ours are up to two full supers, which consist of lots of brood, capped honey and some pollen and my husband says he thinks that at least 3 of them need a new super because of how many bees are in the hives. Is it to late to make small nucs? Help we don't want to loose the bees and we don't quite know what to do about that many queen cells. Any help would be appreciated.
