Last night my son and I inspected our hives and both appear to be doing well. They both have capped honey and pollen on the outside frames and quite a bid of capped brood. We saw the queen again in the stronger hive. There are larvae in brood frames on both hives. In both hives on the center frames there are quite a few drone cells on the bottoms of the frames. If I had to guess a percentage of drone cells versus the remainder of the cells on the frame it would be less than 5%. From everything I have read in books and on this forum at this point I don’t think this is an issue but I would like to hear fellow beek’s thoughts on this.
In the hive that is the weaker of the two I have noticed the following occurring the past couple of nights. See pictures below. Can someone confirm what this is?
Thank you for the help!
