I have a hive that swarmed in the begining of June. They left behind two deeps of capped brood and some capped queen cells. I was going to re-queen, but took the advise that the swarm queens that would emerge would be good, and let them do their thing. I went back in 4 days after the swarm, and noticed that some of the queens had hatched, and left a few queen cells in for good measure. I then put Ross Rounds on figuring it was some what like a cut down split, and with all the brood that was going to emerge I would get the bees to work the comb. Well they ended up making the upper deep completely honey bound. At this point I have seen no evidence of a queen in the hive. Rather than AssUme that there was no queen I thought she might not of had space to lay which could be why I haven't seen anything yet. I put another deep of drawn comb in above the bottom deep, and below a medium of foundation with the deep of un cured honey above that. My hope is that when I go back in this weekend the deep of drawn comb will be all laid out with eggs from a fat swarm queen. If not I have a small hive with a decent queen that I would like to combine with the hive that seems to be queen less.
My question is. Do I add the hive with the queen in it to the one with out, or the other way around. Also any tricks to the news paper method? Is there a better method?
