Drone Brood In Worker Cells

Multiple eggs per cell indicate laying workers. This occurs when the colony is queenless or when the queen is failing. When drone brood emerges from worker brood comb, the queen is a "drone layer" by laying unfertilized eggs. In either case, the colony needs a new queen. A new queen can be purchased or raised from other healthy colonies.
