How can a hive make a queen cell or swarm cell, or whatever cell if there is no queen to actually lay an egg?
I was putting a brood frame into a queenless hive awhile ago and when I pulled out the frame I intended to replace with the good frame, low and behold, there was the "Hanging peanut", capped.
whattaya make of that?
I thought when they finally cap it, then it is from a worker egg. I know I read here that many times they place unfertilized eggs into a queen cell, but tear them down before they finally cap it. Am I making this up in my head?
