I checked out the hive I started from an early swarm this season. Its chock full of bees and honey ( mostly from syrup). However, I saw no eggs, very little larva and just a frame or two of capped brood. The other frames normally filled with brood are filled with pollen. I also have not seen any evidence of a swarm cell or queen cells. Also could not find the queen but it was difficult to see her with all the bees.
My guess is they just swarmed? Do queens lay eggs in a dearth? Is it too late to order a queen?
THANKS in advance..
