Was doing an inspection today and found this on the bottom of the frame. I thought it was just burr comb, but when I scraped it off it revealed this....





This is an overwintered Russian hive. It wintered in two deeps, I reversed the boxes as there was nothing but drawn comb in the bottom box, all bees were in top box. It didn't seem very populated at the time so I left it at one box until they built up more. It was pretty packed with bees when I checked it today and found what I took the pics of. I checkerboarded the brood box with drawn comb and put the other deep back on. Any other suggestions?

All I'm seeing is the burr comb.

Sorry, only one photo appeared when I first commented, but it kinda looks like royal jelly, but it's kinda blurry.

The white stuff is just the larvae that didn't survive the removal. Or possibly the beginnings of royal jelly in cells. Can't see it clearly enough.
