Hi. 1st year keeping. I've had difficulty, think I killed the queen, HOWEVER; they requeened. 2 questions If they made more than 1 queen cell will they kill the other queens if they hatch? Also, last 2 checks I saw cells with larvae in them and now capped BUT I saw 1 larvae each time kind of sitting on top of a cell with a few bees tending to it. Why and that is this?

could be the queen cell attached to the top bar of the box below that was tore in 1/2 when you pulled it apart.
seen one with 7 Q cells last year where 5 were torn in 1/2 when the hive bodies were separated.

The queen cells were not on the top. I was wondering, since it has been very dry by us and blooms are scarce, that they may need more pollen protein so they are attacking and ingesting larvae? I may try to put out a pollen substitute. Jenny.

That is my best hope! I replied to another suggestion that I was wondering if they are attacking and ingesting larvae seeing our area is very dry and blooms are scarce. Maybe they need a pollen substitute. Jenny.
