Re: Confused as usual..... queen status Q s
When I opened a Lang a couple of days ago there were several QC along the bottom of 2 frames. Some were capped and some had an open hole at the tip. Not like a tin can with lid hinged to it...like a can with no lid or an egg with the end lopped off. There was nothing in the open cells and bees were not clustered on them. I had assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that the open ended cells had already had Queens emerge. The edges of the hole were not ragged.
