I'm not sure what to do. During my second (1 1/2 week) inspection of the hive I found that the bees started building a queen cell. I did find the queen and found that she is laying eggs. Should I let nature take its course or should I buy a new queen? :s
Exactly, was a queen cup that is not beight completed is it a supercede cell that is going to be capped?
My best package hive had to be requeened due to being queenless after a couple days of the package queens laying. They made 7-9 supercede cells in a couple weeks. I requeened and they tore down the cells. Right now that hive a a couple steps ahead of the other 3.
