    They are Queen cells.
    They are going to replace the old Queen.
    Do a split by removing the old Queen and leaving the cells in the main hive.
    OR
    If it is a strong hive or you have another hive you could also pull one of the frames with a cell and add 2 frames from another hive to start 2 hives.
