Healthy capped brood

In general, the appearance of a healthy brood pattern is regular with no dead larvae or pupae.

Each cap is slightly raised or convex, without any holes. Caps are uniformly brown, tan or cream.

Healthy pupae under the caps are at first white but as they develop into adults, their colour darkens. The eyes begin to colour first.

The empty cells in between the capped are "heater cells" and not a sign of a problem.
