multiple eggs in cells
« on: April 17, 2017, 07:04:24 AM »
Hi,

I check my over wintered  mass hive yesterday.   Found queen started laying about 10 days ago according the the  brood in the cells.  I found that she is laying two eggs in bottom of the cells though.   They are two in a  cell and at the bottom of the cell.   I found the queen so she  is present.
I believe  she is italian.

Is this just because she is just starting out for  the year, or should I be thinking of requeening?

thanks
tazz

She has likely been replaced and the queen you found is laying for the first time. Give her a week and all should be well.

Hi,

No this is the old queen.  She is marked from last year.
