Re: Seeing eggs but no brood...3 week old swarm
> Radar, what does the bottom of #3 photo look like to you? Looks like it is not capped honey
I agree that those cells appear to not be capped, and may also be empty.
My comment about queens was not meant to imply that I agree that I saw QCs in the photos. It was in response to the OP's comment of
Could it be they had a queen, lost her, and now they are trying to raise a new one
Photo 1 does have an area that the cells bump out in a manner that may resemble some QCs, but I am not going to proclaim that as a queen cell.
