    I have a hive that superceded the queen and it has been @least 9 days and still no brood. I went into the hive this afternoon and It looks likes there is honey in all the frames in both the hive body and the brood chamber! What do I need to do? Thanks for any help.

    If it were me I would put in several frames of empty comb near the center or some new foundation. This will give the queen a place to lay eggs. Keep watching for this hive as it seems to be honey bound at this time, this is probably why they made a new queen as the oldone had no place to raise brood.

    it can take a virgin queen several weeks to get laying right.
