Yesterday I did an inspection on a split I've been limping along. I saw a few dozen cells with large larva in them, so they have been there less then 8 or 9 days? The hive has close to 2 full frames of girls, and they are filling 3 or 4 frames with nectar. I don't see eggs anywhere. There are two open queen cells on the side of one frame in the middle. I have transferred frames with eggs, larva, capped cells twice now from my strong hive. The frame with the open queen cells was transferred and I'm not sure if they were there before or not. The last transfer of a frame was around 21 days ago. Any one got any advice or idea whats going on here? If they cap them as drones in a few days is it a laying worker? Could it be a queen just starting to lay? We have had intermittent cold and wet weather until just the last week or so in my little valley, so I'm guessing my hives are playing catch up?
