This is my first year beekeeping and I have one hive and got it the 2nd week in May. To start off with, my queen was laying extremely well. Lots of bee, lots of comb built out. Currently I have one large hive with 10 frames, all frames drawn out and about 4 or 5 of them full of honey and nectar. I also have a small honey super that's about 60% drawn out and 3 frames completely full of honey. But my queen has slowed down dramatically in her laying. Is this normal for this time of year. The center frames of he hive where there were hundreds of capped brood, is mostly empty now. There are still a few patches of capped brood, but I see very few larvae in any of the other cells. Any my eyes just aren't good enough to see the eggs and today I forgot my glasses and magnifying glass. But I did see a few larvae and I did see the queen. I live in northeast Alabama. Is this normal behavior for a queen in this region, in this heat and this time of year. I'm not sure if I have a problem or not. thanks in advance for any help advice with this.
