Ok, I'm much sadder than I was. I have three hives, and all have bees coming and going with pollen and nectar.
Today, I opened the hives since it was a 73 degree day. The first hive had bees, but not many, and I never found a queen, brood OR eggs. In the second hive (Russians), I found more bees, but still not many. Again, no eggs, brood, queen, or larvae. In the third hive, I found Her Majesty!! She was in the upper box, and there were lots of eggs, capped brood and larvae!! I was very happy after the condition of the first three.
So my question is if it would be worth ordering a new queen or two for the other hives, or give them some time, and possibly do a split from the third hive later?
Thanks for your help!
Disappointed in Milton.
