Am I right in thinking these are Queen cups? If so since they are open is it true they are of no concern? I was able to locate my queen and new eggs so she is there and laying. I do have what seems like a fair amount of drone cells (a couple clusters of them on about half of the frames. I have 2 deep brood boxes with a couple empty frames left in the top, all stages of brood, and a few frames that look to me to be solid honey/nectar. I do notice some of the bottom box the brood has hatched and not filled back in so a couple of those frames are now also mostly empty as well. Thank you again for all the help!! I am so glad you have allowed me to join and take the time to answer my newbie questions.
