This probably sounds ridiculous, but is there a trick to seeing eggs? My eyes aren't all that bad (I need +1s to read comfortably) but even though I've tried I have yet to see eggs - brood all over the place. Once Kathyp (thanx) told me that drone brood looks like kix cereal - no problem - I now know exactly how much I have (a little, but I would say not too much). Is there a similar trick to seeing eggs? I need a frame with eggs tomorrow to proceed with a trap out that I have all set up - platform, hive, moved the entrance, trap cone on the ready - everything all set to go. Moved the entrance because the old one was behind the electrical meter base - if you were wondering.
If I can't see eggs I'm gonna take my best guess. I've notice that on some frames capped brood is surrounded by progressively smaller uncapped brood in concentric arcs. I assume that beyond what I can see is larvae and eggs that I can't see. I'm going in armed with some +2.5 bifocals.
