Did the queen go in the trapout, or did you supply some eggs at some stage, or what?

I used a weak hive as the trap as it was going in to winter and the chances of making a new queen were probably fairly slim.

I bought them home last night & haven't had a chance to look inside yet but there are plenty of bees flying. This hive is probably getting a new queen soon anyway as it's never done particularly well. It's from a small swarm I picked up around November last year and it's never really built up to decent numbers.
