I put a new young queen in a hive. I did all I was supposed to before I did. She doesn't lay in a proper pattern. She will fill an entire frame then skip some then spot fill another. Lately I haven't seen any capped brood, but there seem to be as many bees as before. Any ideas?

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

It has been said that a queen does her best work in her second year. I would wait and see on this one if you recently installed her. Look at the big picture with this hive also, are they building? Making honey?
