Cowper Hive – Queen Cell Capped

9/4/2010 – There were at least four emergency queen cells the other day. Today we inspected and only saw one. The others were torn down. Guess the girls know what they are doing and will only keep the best out of what was selected. This queen cell is now capped. In a few days she will be out. We’ll look for her next weekend. Recently I don’t see any or many drones in any hives, hopefully she will be mated.

Didn’t get a good shot but you can see the capped queen cell.
