I have found 2 queen cells built out on the bottom of one frame. This hive is what is left of a small swarm which originally was a 3# package that absconded (of my 2 packages both of which absconded). Since then the hive was oven-run by carpenter ants which killed 1/3 to 1/2 of the bees before I discovered the bees had left the hive and were on the ground in front of the hive. I built a hive stand a week ago and put the legs in buckets of oil which appears to have solved the ant problem but this colony is only working 2 frames of comb in a 8 frame medium box mainly I believe to their greatly reduced numbers. Should i just leave them alone and hope they don't leave when the new queen hatches or take the frame and put into a 5 frame nuc box I have essentially splitting what is already a weak colony? I have another nuc nearly completed I would put the remaining bees into to reduce the size of box they need to maintain. They don't seem to be taking any more sugar water over the last several days. Since I am a new beek I can't combine these bees with anything. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
