Drone layer... and queen cell?

So the larvae were not all chewed up? I heard if they are getting at the mites they chew about half the larvae out and go on to the next then clean up later. I could be wrong.

Sometimes the lavae come out whole and sometimes they remove them in pieces.

See I was right. When I said I could be wrong.
