Hello and good day to all.
My hive was very quiet so I looked inside.
There is no queen although there are still bees left.
There is also no brood. The bottom hive body has comb
that is mostly empty. The top hive body is 90% capped honey.
At this point should I...
1) add a new queen?
2) put in a package of bees with a new queen?
3) wait until next season to add a package of bees with new queen?
4) Purchase nuc hive?
Does anyone have suggestions?
Thank you for your time.
