I split one of my hives on April 5 and purposely moved the existing queen to the new hive. I checked the old hive in one week, April12, and saw a new queen cell. I checked in one more week, April 19, and the queen cell was open. I just checked again today and saw multiple eggs in many of the cells. I searched very carefully and did not find the queen. There was some decent-size larvae along with the multiple eggs, so I am guessing the laying worker started laying about when the new queen emerged and may have killed her. I have done splits many, many times before and never had a worker start laying that quickly. What do any of you suggest to find or stop the laying worker so I can install a new queen and they will not kill her? I also saw something odd. There was an empty, open queen cell on one frame, but it was almost tow inches long.
