Recently installed a 5 frame NUC. Been feeding it, did see a queen, haven't done much else with it.
Have had the NUC about 3 weeks. Yesterday I opened the hive to check on it and pulled out some of the new frames I installed after getting the hive. When I pulled 1 of the frames out I noticed 2 queen cells. 1 of them was completely closed and the other was being built or the queen had already been released from that cell as it had a large hole at the end where the queen would be released.
I did see the queen about 10 days previous to this and did not see any queen cells as far as I remember.
What is going on here?
Any thoughts ideas or things to look for or do?
Very new to all this. Any help be appreciated.
