Im a first year bee keeper with a flow hive in the south of the U.K. I received a 5 frame NUC about 4 weeks ago all the bees have settled in nicely the queen is laying a good number of brood workers and drone cells are present and in good formations on the frames, There are quite a few drone cells present but not sure how many is too many! I saw the queen yesterday and new lava. Lots of young bees have hatched and there is a good nectar flow and lots of pollen and honey being produced. They have filled out two new frames with comb and the super box has been added which they are starting to coat with wax.
Yesterday while inspecting the hive i noticed what I can see as two Queen cells on different frames in the bottom middle and left of the frames.The bees seem to have plenty of room and are healthy i just wondered wether i should be expecting a swarm soon or any ideas you think on the course of action I should take. Bellow is a picture of one of the cells, This is the bigger of the two its in an awkward position so difficult to see inside it for any lava but will go back in a few days to have another look.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have.
