I did a split a few weeks ago. I expected one hive to make its own queen from queen cells present. Almost immediately, I started getting eggs. Turns out they are drones and most of the cells have multiple eggs. How could that happen so fast? They came from a hive that had and has a good queen.
Last week I gave them a frame with eggs, but they did not build any queen cells. Today I found and removed the "queen". She had attendants just like a real queen and I did not see any others. This bee has a large body like a queen, but all of my other queens have a yellow abdomen....this one has stripes like the workers.
What now? I have her separated from the hive with a few attendants. Is she good for anything??
