My first post here. I am new to beekeeping, and just got my first hive and bee family 4 days ago. Today I decided to suit up for the first time, and inspect the hive. I am using a 12 x 10 hive, so far with just one hive body.
The inspection went well, I did not upset the bees too much, but I was not able to locate the queen. Is that normal, or have I already lost my queen?
