What is the Trigger for Cell Capping?

This is not my original idea... the first thoughts on this matter came from John Groocock.

What causes the worker bees to start capping a fully developed grub?

Is this the same trigger that varroa use to initiate migration into the cell?

Can we develop a pheramone to mimic this trigger and use it to make a trap for varroa?

Juvenile hormone?
Royal jelly quality and constituent percentages?
