Can't see eggs/larvae-Hope it's my eyes

Brian, I think you make a valid point.  

I too had 1 of 6 packages I installed this spring go queenless.  The pictures I found (of the eggs) came from a blog where SHE describes 1 or her 2 hives going queenless.

How many others on this site have had this problem this spring?

Thats sounds like a good question for a topic of its own.

Update on Queenless!

On May 14th I took two frames of eggs,larvae and capped brood from the strong hive and put them in the "Queenless" hive

On May 20th. I saw ? 3 closed queen cells on the top of one frame.

Today, May 27th there was only one closed queen cell.

UPDATE........June 9th.......SHE'S BACK..We have eggs (I can see them finally with the reading glasses) and larvae. The process works but for a new guy I sure was worried.

Thank you everyone for your advice and support.

Mine started laying June 4th, I know what you mean I was worried also but if it happens now I will just say oh well. Now with the drought we are having I just hope they have enough time to build up for winter.
