A while back I had a frame with 4 queen cells on it. 3 of the queen obviously emerged. One cell remained closed, wax removed from the cap but the cocoon intact. I moved the frame to another queen less hive in the hopes that it was just being held in the cell by the workers due to an older queen.

Well after a month I cut it off today and ripped it open.



The queen obviously is dead, why wouldn't the workers have ripped that cell open and disposed of her?
