I have had 2 like thatand right now need to go through my hives to check that no more qc’s have been created in last 5 days. But it is mighty windy here. Easy to forget to check again a few days after reducing qc’s. Remembering that they can still create queens from a larva 2-4 days old (7 days from laid egg).
