Picked up a nuc Saturday. Went out Sunday afternoon to change them to a 10 frame box and found a ball of bees on the bottom board. Queen dead. the last of the eggs hatched yesterday or today. They have not started a queen cell yet. How long should I give them?
I thought there may have been another queen in but can't find any eggs. They would be easy to see on the black plastic foundation. :'( :)d2
