today i opened up the hive with one of my favorite queens, a michael palmer descendent. i look through the hive lots of fresh laid eggs wall to wall brood but i can not find the queen and she is marked. then to my horror i find her squashed between 2 frames. then i am thinking why no queen cells? i am still overcome with grief then it dawns on me 2 queens so i start carefully looking for a second queen. then i see a bee acting like a queen with shiny back like a queen so i marked her then later i am still looking for a queen and i see the marked bee and i notice another bee with a shiny black back looking in cells. does anyone out there know what a laying worker looks like? does the shiny back come from brushing against the cell walls? any help would be great! jim
