>Well I somehow killed the queen, so I sent off and got one and they accepted her so after a week I looked in to see how things were going.
I'd probably let them raise their own becuase I like feral genetics.
>When I lifted the frame up that the queen was on she took flight. I thought she might return, but, NO!!! Instead the workers found where she went and most of the workers went to her.
Usually when a queen takes flight she will orient on you, the beekeeper. If you stand still for 10 minutes and leave the hive open odds are she will return.
> Now I am with a real small swam of bees.
Why not recombine with the other hive?
> I ordered another queen this time trimmed and marked; got her in the box and started feeding sugar water. Looked in to see how things were going again. This time what comb they have built is full of syrup
Because you keep feeding them.
> and not building comb where they should. I have EZ all plastic frames and it seems they are determined not to put comb on the foundation.
Because it's plastic and I'm betting you have them equally spaced apart or you have 9 frames in the box. Put in ten and crowd them toegerh in the center and I think you'll resolve the problem. Also when they mess one up, flip it 180 degress.
> Could anyone give me some advice?
Leave them alone. They will raise a new queen and everything else will settle out.
