had a hive that i knew was queenless. had popped a frame of eggs and stuff in over a week ago to hold them until i could combine. did the combine today, but had expected them to make at least an attempt at queen cells. there were none, but they had tended the brood fine. thought that was odd?
wondered: 1. no drones so why bother or 2. failed queen that i missed?
don't really need a solution, but was curious about the findings.
