Drone cells in the Treatment Free world
I am wondering what the TF keepers practice is when it comes to drone cell building. Let em bee, cut em out, limit them, etc.
I am a first season beek and at five weeks my colony has created between two and three dozen drone cells on two bars (HTBH) out of a total of about ten full size combs and maybe six more combs in various stages of completeness. I'm thinking that's nothing to worry about. I don't intend to manipulate what the colony is doing. The combs all have very nice patterns with all stages of brood. No queen cells that I can see.
