It's me again. Ravenseye response got me thinking. (Can you smell the smoke?) I've been saying what a great job my queen is doing but maybe she isn't. I have found several queen cells over the past couple of months and promptly removed them---maybe the girls are trying to tell me something??? I think I'll leave the cells and see what happens. Ravenseye, you are dealing with exactly the same condition I am. I haven't see much new drawn comb in a long time. I just never know if an issue is really an ISSUE or just natural.

To append to what xc0000000005 wrote....

The bees will usually keep "spare" queen cups around. As long as they don't have eggs or larvae in them you can usually igore them.

Personally I would let them be and watch to see what happens. Although the time is waning fast for a queen to mate.
