Briefly, as a first season keeper, I did not add a box soon enough, and lost my queen. I had already removed the other queen cells not realizing there was a small swarm in a tree, and I was hoping that she was still there. I did find what I believe is a queen cell that was eaten out from the bottom, but can't find a queen in there, of course I have not yet been able to see my queen even when she was doing great. If I do have a queen, it is probably a virgin queen at this point, not really good weather since the swarm incident. Now I don't know what to do. Wait and see? Get another queen in there? My biggest frustration all along has been finding the queen. I bought a nuc and they didn't mark her.
