Figured I would have at least one queen leave the hive
Went to watch one of my new TBHs today. When I arrived, I noticed a very loud roar coming from the hive. I did a quick look and noticed that there is only about a baseball sized ball of bees left and the queen cage was empty. I believe she has left the hive with just about the rest of the 3lb package I had installed.
I possibly can get a queen in a couple of days. Think it is worth trying to get a queen into this small a cluster? Its a new top bar hive, they have built some comb, but no eggs present after inspection.
Thanks for any input. I figured at least one hive would do this.
