    Default Possible swarm prep?

    It's been warm this winter, the bees were getting pollen in January, and still are, and the queen is laying brood. Three weeks ago, the top deep was about 60-70 pounds and full of honey, no brood, the bottom deep was full of comb mostly empty except for brood. Last weekend, the top deep had brood and drone cells with about 50 pounds of honey, the bottom deep was light and full of empty comb covered in bees, so I swapped my deeps. There were also comb they kept building on the top of the bottom deep frames, and some joined to the bottom of the top deep. I scrapped them off two times in 2 weeks, and there was no larva. Last weekend, they had build them back and they had larva in them, don't know if they could be queen cells or not...here is a pic of what I scrapped off, you can see the larva....
