Someone asked this in the course of a different thread, but I never saw a response. I requeened a couple of weeks ago, but the weather hasn't been co-operating in terms of my going back into the hive to check on her. I do, however, see workers returning with pollen. Is it safe to assume the new queen is OK? If she's not, how long will the workers go on without a queen? I'm not sure if I need to go back in and search for her (the swelling from all the stings from my previous adventure has gone, and I have a new veil, so if it warms up enough I could try again).
