Worker bees revolting - My hive is dying!
I have two hives on the same property in SC. Both were started with package bees on April 1 of this year. One hive is thriving and the other has had nothing but trouble. There is no evidence of pests whatsoever. The hive has been requeened unsuccessfully after the initial queen was not present and there was no evidence of egg laying. At the suggestion of a local experienced beekeeper, I took a frame from the healthy hive and put it into the troubled one. Has anyone had this trouble with package bees? Do you have any suggestions on how to revive this hive?
