Re: Fall Inspection - Single Swarm Cell w/ larvae
Sounds more like a supersedure cell to me. Normally they will only make one or two cells when they decide to supersede a queen, but when they make swarm cells there is usually many, and of all stages. In your shoes it would be a difficult choice to make depending upon if there were still drones around. If there's plenty of drones, let them do their thing. If there's no drones, you may want to think about getting a mated queen from down south.
