I've noticed that what I think is my best laying queen seems to be impatient and is laying eggs in comb that is not completely finished. What I mean is comb depth. The workers haven't made the cell walls as deep as the comb on the rest of the frame yet and I can see eggs and larvae in it already.

New swarms, packages, nucs installed into larger hives. Anytime she runs out of space and they are drawing more comb, she will lay in short, unfinished comb. It is normal.

Ok! This is my captured swarm hive from May so I'll let 'em bee and consider myself blessed to have a good laying queen!
