I have 2 new hives after apprenticing last year. One hive is doing great. The other - not so much. Cannot find the queen (even tho she was released), population is diminished, lots of dead bees at entrance and on the ground. And ants! Crawling everywhere. Did the ants kill these new/weak bees? I can find very little info on ants in beehives. And should I requeen or wait to see if the 3 queen cells I saw work?
Thanks in advance for advice!
