I've been having a devil of a time with a colony:
- Poor performing queen,
- Unsuccessful re-queening attempt,
- Laying worker(s) (!),
- Shook hive to roust out LW(s),
- Second unsuccessful attempt to re-queen.
Colony's been queenless for about a month now, some (aging) foragers remain, but zero brood.
Is a 3rd attempt to requeen this one pointless? Unfortunately, don't have a strong colony handy to combine with...
