im going away for two weeks, i need to show my wife a pic of capped drone larvae so she can tell me if i have a laying worker(see "multiple eggs" post). right now i just have young larvae, they should be capped in a few days. she says she will check them for me but has never done it before and has no idea what to look for. i tried to tell her what the differance was but she thinks she wont know the dif especially if there is only capped drones and she has never seen either. thanks kevin

Sorry, don't have pictures. BUT....... Regular old brood and honey that is capped is basically flat. Drone cells capped would be all bumpy (domed cappings) Can't be mistaken for anything else.

Queen cells, big globs of wax that looks totally different from rest of comb.


Try that.

Laying workers and drone laying queens produce drones in worker cells:

Joseph - I know they're laying in worker cells but, will the capped drone from a laying worker look like a regular capped drone or will it look like a capped worker?

It will have dome tops like other drone cells.

When the drones are being raised improperly in worker cells, they stand out even more than the usual drone brood does. The cells are enlarged, extended from the comb surface, and they have obvious bullet shaped cappings. Just like in the photo at the link I posted earlier.
