4803.jpg frame #5 on 2nd deep. First picture was frame #4. Added 2nd deep a couple weeks ago they drew out 7 frames of comb so I added a medium super on top last week. Opened it up today to these 2 pictures. Didn't see queen this week but plenty of eggs. Should I split it to prevent it from swarming? It is all new to me. Started with a 5 frame nuc late April.

Most hives have a few queen cups, some have a bunch. They're not an issue unless they have eggs (or larva) and royal jelly in them.
