i did a split a few weeks back and today found my new queen. I also found multiple eggs in what appears to be drone cone cells. My question is do I have a laying worker or is my queen not mated correctly? there is lots of room in the nuc for more eggs to be laid. how long does it take the new queen to settle in and start going? I have 5 frames fully drawn but the eggs were confined to one small area on one frame and like i said it appears to be drone comb I would call it burr comb really. its in the middle of new foundation and looks like someone just cut a piece and stuck it on there. If its a laying worker why are the other frames not holding eggs? some cells have single eggs and they appear to be in the middle but some have maybe 5 eggs in them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
