I went and looked at my hives the other day. A lot of them were going at it but there was one not doing anything. The other day I was going to go into that hive to see what was going on and it was going like gang busters, but one of the hives that had been busy before was now not doing anything.

Don't know what to tell ya.  huh

When you went into the hive did you see any brood, eggs or any queen sign ? YOu may need to go back in and look. Were they in a foul mood ? noisier than normal ? any queen cells ?

Are they same subspecies as your other hives?  If the cluster is pretty small and there is adequate stores chances are the bees will go to producing brood in order to build up enough to resemble your other hives.  Are the bees that are venturing out bringing back pollen?  Are the bees in the other hives bringing back pollen or just doing cleansing flights.  If no pollen feed them a pollen patty and a little 1:1 syrup and prod them on into growth.  A look insid will also tell you if you have a sufficient amount of bees to bother with.  If not you have 2 choices: combine or barrow brood frames (including nurse bees) from you other hives.
