I have a new hive that I started from a package this year that has been nothing but trouble. It started when the bees decided that they needed to replace what seemed like a perfect queen, I let let the bees do their thing and they replaced here. I saw the new queen on an inspection and some spotty brood but nothing to write home about. Today I went back and found some larva that looks to be about a day or so old but not a single egg. There are the makings of queen cells on almost every frame and 2 capped cells. At this point of the year I am not sure if I should just call my losses, let them make another attempt at it, or try to find an queen.
So my question is what would you do? And if there are any beeks in S.E. Michigan where can I pick up a queen local if that is what I decided to do? I don't want to spend $60 to have one shipped to me, for some reason that just seems ridiculous. I am sure that there are cheaper but that is the first I priced. Thanks for your help.
