I purchased 2 complete hives about a month ago. One of the hives seems to be doing great but the other I am worried about. I went through the hives last week to look for the queen and inspect the brood but could not find the queen or any brood in the weaker hive. On the other hive I could identify the queen and brood. The guy i bought the hives from is also my mentor and he is having health issues. There seemed to be allot of bees in there and there was some uncapped honey. There are also allot of bees bringing in pollen which someone told me is a good sign the queen is there but I missed her. What should I do. It will be too cold to go back in the brood area until mid next week. I am so new I am wondering if I missed something or if I really have a problem.
