5 days ago I moved a frame with a sealed QC and three more frames of BIAS and bees from a colony and into a nuc as an attempt to make increase. I was to hoping to find today that the QC had emerged.

Instead of that I found that it had disappeared and that three new QCs had been created. That didn't particularly surprise me but what did was a pile of 20+ dead brood outside the entrance. As I watched a worker bee took another pupae out of the colony and dumped it outside.

What is going on?
