Found these at bottom of frame, are they partially built swarm cells? I have two deeps, added on a super a week ago, which they are not too interested in.

Thanks in advance. IMG_2267.jpg IMG_2265.jpg

They are swarm cups/cells. Many times the bees build them, but they stay empty, on standby. If they are empty, they are called swarm cups, and there is no response needed from you. If they have eggs/larvae in them, they are swarm cells, and you need to plan for them to swarm unless you take action.
