The hive has been queenless for about a week and a half i took out the old queen and then i went back and took out all queen cells and made sure they had none hid. I shook all the bees of every frame to make sure no cells to be found so i went and did a graft and put them in and 24hrs. later i went back and the grafts was gone no larvae or anything. So i went on a search to make sure there was no more queen cells and none to be found and now they have no queen or fresh larvae to make one so i am wondering what happen i am going to graft again Wednesday and give it one last chance.
Are you not a little late to try grafting in Virginia ?
This there still drones flying around ?
Isn't it a little cold at night time ?
And in the daytime also ?
It has been my experience queen bees do not mate well under 65F
