When food quits coming in, queen quits laying.
3 weeks later, last of brood emerges.
Trap out takes minimum 5 weeks, up to 12 weeks.

Just for the heck of it I did a search for the word "brood" and nothing came up.

That's OK though, not to worry, I found my answer on another site. ;)

The queen that is in the old hive, after all the food has stopped coming in and all brood has stopped, will leave or swarm with what's left of the bees.

hiya Tommy

hehe.. unfortunately there's nothing much left to photograph.   They've absconded, lock stock and barrel.

I'm still sure it was a very new and small swarm just setting up house, so I think we unsettled them enough that they decided to set up house elsewhere.

New colony would have been nice, but nursemaiding a swarm wasn't something I particularly need to be doing with our others in going on full production right now.

ah well, good experience, and auntie is happy - so much so we've been given a site on their block of land, and there's a buttload of nice weed and thistle forage out there, so we'll be settling that apiary as soon as we get some hives harvested down enough to be movable.
