When a laying worker is active in a colony, do the cappings on the cells appear any different than in a normal colony? I made up 3 nucs a few weeks ago. Two have raised queens and are doing well. One was slow, but now has what appears to be normally capped worker and drone cells. I see larvae but my eyesight is not good enough to see any eggs. But, I cannot find a queen in this colony. Does the presence of a drone larva in a worker cell cause the cap to have a domed appearance or will it still be flat?
