This Saturday, Mar 8, 2009, I did a hive inspection. The hive consists of two deep supers. I did not find any larva or capped cells in any of the twenty frames of the two deep supers. I only found pollen and capped and uncapped honey.
The last hive inspection was 2 weeks ago. At that time I noticed there were very few capped brood cells, very few larva. The bees were bringing in pollen. So it looks like I killed the queen during the last inspection or the previous inspection.
My question is this, is it too late to requeen this hive. The bees are very busy bringing in pollen and nectar.
