    Was a mated queen , checked today 8/25 found nothing. What is next ? Is it to late to try another queen? Or should I try to combine with another hive and if so what is the best way to do it?

    Re: time to add?

    One hive would need to draw comb but i have frames drawn out already for the other one. So i should wait until capped before adding undrawn frames? But i can add the drawn frames before capped?

    Re: time to add?

    Why?
    I thought that if i added another honey supper they would start to fill it and when the honey was cured in the lower supper they would still cap it? Is this not right.

    Re: What to do ? queen cells ? no queen

    Being a new package in may wouldn't it be a bad idea to pull a couple frames out and make a split (nuc) now? Or would this just be to hatch a queen?

    Re: is this normal?

    Is my thinking correct that 2 deep box's will be enough space for them to keep circulating the eggs and have enough space to lay in and raise brood and above that are the honey suppers?

    Not sure I thought they were all drone cells. Should I start thinking swarm? Being the first year I did not think I would have to worry about swarming.
