Was looking to add a box to my latest swarm, about a month old. Saw what looks like a queen cell, but couldn't tell for sure. Just to be safe, I moved the queen and 4 frames to a new box to simulate a swarm, and left this in the original box.
Thanks, guys. Too many cells in that, making it burr comb, gotcha. Queen cells are smoother. Had to make a judgment call, it was approaching dark, and I didn't have time to unveil and Google it. No harm no foul, I'm sure they will be happy to have their queen back after 18 hours apart.
