    Question Thoughts & Advice...

    Took a peek today and found a few things I am not sure about…

    The deeps are mostly empty, at least the top deep—reserves used up over winter?

    Found some white larvae (?) about 1/2” long and they turn to a puddle, almost, when touched.

    Cells that have the caps raised and light brown. I’ve seen them before but never considered them.

    And a large bee—likely a drone?

    The pics are pretty lousy. Reckon a new camera might be in the future.

    Thoughts/advice.

    Thanks…1/33

    If you are referring to the cells at the bottom of the frame, it is capped drone cells. Appears to be a drone in the first picture, and perhaps the white larvae was from bridge comb with drone larvae in it that separated when you pulled the frame?
    Please excuse me, I am now free to go manage & treat ;)
    my ladies the best way I know how.

    Agreed, that's all drone "stuff". Drone brood sometimes sticks out so far it looks like a queen cell.
