Kathy, when I see swarm cells as such, what I like to do is to take the queen from that colony, a good part of the brood and a good part of the honey and place in a new place in a new box. Those bees are already in the swarm mood, and nothing will change their mind. The queen in the new location, lots of brood gone (so the other original hive does not have to do too much work with brood rearing) and honey, the bees are under the belief that a swarm has occurred. The beekeeper has fooled the bees. They won't swarm as they think the colony has. Of course, swarm prevention should be in place, but sometimes we just get a little lazy, smiling.
The queen cups that you see in the middle of the frame. I would never cut them out or take them off the frame. I believe that the bees know what is up and I leave them alone. There is a good chance that even though they have built these (unless there are queen eggs/larvae within these cells), that they are going to be torn down. And if they have a queen within any of these cells, I think they are of the belief that they have a failing queen and need a new one. I know that I have not even tipped the edge of the iceberg with my learning, but I would like to think that I know a little bit, smiling.
I am still in such a massive learning curve in my beekeeping that I still just don't get stuff. But really, when I think logically about what the bees are doing, I really think that they know best. Oh yeah, have a wonderful and awesomely great day, life, health, we all be lovin' and livin' our great lives. Cindi
