too late to re queen?
I have 1hive with a lazy queen she has run hot and cold all summer and now the some of the brood pattern is good and other frames are spotty. including a couple that have what looks like a cell filled with eggs :scratch: The other worreysome bit is there isn't much for honey stores in the hive lots of pollen but not much honey. And. there are a number of bees with deformed wings like you get with a really bad varoa infestation, but the count is low.
so do I take the loss, combine with anouther hive or try to find a queen and replace the lazy one.
The hives are located in upstate ny.
If you combine, you run the risk of infecting the good with this one. Requeen and feed is what I'd do myself in that postion in this time of year.
