So I Installed 2 3lb of Italians on March 31st. Checked them April 6th Queens where released and eggs where present. Checked hives on April 10th and one of the hive had 6 to 8 Emergency Cells and was unable to locate Queen! 2 cells where capped and the rest were on there way so I think. I am assuming i crushed her last inspection . What should I do and here are some questions.
- Are there enough drones in South East PA this time of year for a new Queen?
- Should I order another Queen now or wait?
- When should I enter the hive again
- In a few weeks i am guessing I should move a frame of Brood over to the other hive to keep them on the same pace?
