    Two weeks ago when I was in one of my hives I saw tons of brood comb. Today, just a few. I feel like there is a queen in there because it went from a normal buzz in one super and then a loud one when I took one a different one off. Again, almost no drone comb and only a few brood but I honestly didn't inspect every fame. Not confident enough yet. Here are two pictures that look like queen cells or swam cells? Any help would be appreciated.

    Just looks like some stuff that bees have built. That is all.

    +1 with riverrat...Just some burr comb. Queen cells look like the Planters peanuts dude, and will either be on the bottom, or in the middle of your frames.

    Queen cells are also situated vertically and everything else is situated horizontally.
