When the queen lays an egg in a cell, how is the cell prepared for the acquisition of the tiny egg?
Will the worker bees slightly fill the cell with some food source before the queen lays?
The reason I'm asking is that I went back into the hive and found a couple more frames of larvae and eggs. These frames up top originally had brood in them and after hatch out I thought the bees were back filling because of the clear liquid in the cells. I pulled those frames several days later and found I had a frame and a half of eggs/larva in them. I also at the same time held back feed.
So I'm confused if I'm seeing back filling or cell/egg preparation in the brood frames.
