Was out looking at the bees this afternoon, I use old rubber roofing in front of the hives to keep the grass down, this also lets me see some of what is being thrown out the front door too. There laid a nice little queen cell with the cap removed and a small tiny hoe in the side of it like another queen had killed her. Then I see the little dead virgin queen laying there with a big wound in her side.

Never had seen them just throw out a whole queen cell before.

interesting. I always figured they tore down the queen cells and used the wax in other areas. That little virgin must have really mad them mad to throw it all out the door.Thanks for sharing
