i just checked my hive and found some wierd looking cells down at the bottom of a frame. they were large, about 1/4 to 3/8 of and inch beyond everything else. there were about 4-8 of them in sort of a cluster. some are capped and some look like they are nearly ready to be capped. they look differant than the nice symetrical domes of a drone cell. they look like what i imagined a queen cell would look like, but i thought queen cells were built vertically, these are horizontal. also, i didn't notice any new eggs/young larvae. im kinda of worried, what should i do?
i didn't see the queen but i haven't seen her since i got the bees about seven weeks ago. i know she was there because i have seen lots of larvae and i have bees taking first flights today. help
