Queen Cells - Bee Vlog - Jul 5, 2014

Checking up on the 3 nucs that were split off of Queen Helen. It's been 7 days since the split and I need to see if the queen cells have at least been started. If the bees aren't raising any queens at this point then another frame of eggs would need to be given to them.

Fortunately, it looks like they wasted no time and immediately started raising new queens. I found a good quantity of capped queen cells in each nuc. Which means they chose from the very young larvae and began building out the cells within a day after the split.
