Hi everyone,

I've been checking my hives on warm days over the last month. All is going well, with brood production picking up as the month has passed. Except for one.

This hive has a fall queen in it, and has no brood. The queen is there, but no brood. I've fed sugar syrup, and pollen substitute. To no avail. I've even put a frame of brood from another hive in, but nothing seems to help. So maybe someone here can help me. The hive is very very strong. I do have a small hive that I've brought through the winter that I can combine with this one if it comes to it. Either way I need to do something so the hive will be ready for the main flow in the next month.

Thanks
