Don't confuse queen "cups" with queen cells. there will always be queen cups.
When you hive a new package or swarm on new equipment that has never had drawn comb, when drawing comb they will draw out a certain amount of queen cups. Then they are there if they need them. :)doak

Cool thanks. I'll keep them fed. They have seemed to be a little more agressive today not attacking just more active and aware of my presence. I did use some smoke and they calmed down just buzzing more. I ordered another hive so i'll be on the look out for another swarm. I've been getting into permaculture and planted 13 fruit and nut trees and have doing aquaponics for my second spring and rearly seen any bees in my yard. I think this will be a great year.
