It's been five days, and we just couldn't wait. Bees were coming, bees were going, which was good, but not enough to satisfy our curiosity. We needed to know what was going on inside The Dregs. This is the one problem with bees and beehives -- you can't see inside them without lifting the lid. Like the famous cat of Schrodinger fame, they could be alive or dead, but without looking in the box, we would never really know.
|Lots of capped brood and Queen cells at the bottom.|

|More Queen cells, these all over the frame. The bees will pick any cell that has an egg that is the right age when they don't have a Queen.|
