I am new to beekeeping and LOVE IT. I found a sealed queen cell today and carefully cut it out to take home an examine it. I looked through it with a light and see nothing. Does this mean it's an empty cell? Do bees seal empty queen cells? I examined it very carefully and there are absolutely no openings where anything hatched.

Thanks for a reply from anyone.

they dont seal empty queen cells, I have found when the queen larva isn't feed enough it will die and dry up and you will see this on the bottom of the cell.

Thanks a million for the reply. Yes I looked through with a bright light and just didn't see anything just thought it was a bit odd.

Thanks for the help Smiley

Where are you hopelessly lost at?
OH! I guess if you are lost you don't know, sorry.
