Done the split on June 14, that means all old brood has hatched. The one in ? has only a few larvae and I couldn't fine any eggs. Of course the light wasn't good either. The good one has one frame with one side full of capped and uncapped brood. may be a half doz cells missing, if that many. When I found this I just closed it back up and didn't look to see how much brood overall there was. When I saw her before she mated she looked solid black. I should know what kind of temperament the bees have around the first to 15th of Sept.
I am pleased with the results of my first attempt at rearing new queens. But remember, I didn't notch the cells, but this was virgin comb.
