I had a swarm in late July at some point when I was on vacation. Noticed the loss of a queen and cells when I got back. Several empty swarm cells but after back to back inspections, no queen. There may have been some worker laying going on as I noticed a few cells with muliple eggs. The new queen has been placed for 7 days. I noticed a PILE of larva, debris, etc on the bottom screen. Gross and smelly. Cleaned it. There are 2 frames of my 2 Deep 8 Boxes that have eggs and larva at stages. It looks like some of the larva should be getting capped.
I don’t understand what is going on here. Can someone speculate on what is going on?
