Laying workers?

Basic beekeeping, this is beekeeping after the first winter until about the third or fourth year. You are a beekeeper, but you still have a lot to learn. Talk about normal everyday beekeeping here.

Laying workers?

Postby Guest » Tue May 17, 2016 1:11 am

I hived 2 swarms about 10 days ago. The larger one was on a Friday and the smaller on a Monday. All seemed going really well and I saw both bringing pollen in today. Both swarms came from the same hive in a tree. The tree swarmed 3 times and I got the second and third swarm so I assume both swarms were virgin queens. Today was first sunny day in a while so I opened them up. The smaller hive had eggs one per cell in the bottom of the cell. The larger hive was a mess. Multiple eggs in each cell. Thinking my best bet is to shake them out. Any thoughts?
