Checked on a nuc split this morning to see if I had a mated queen. No sign of her or newly laid eggs but I did find that the honey stores were completely gone. There were some bees that died half way out of their cell while emerging. Their tongues were hanging out. There was also one whole frame of eggs and 1-2 day old larvae that were completely dried up and dead. This was an outside frame. Not sure why I placed a full frame of eggs on the outside unless I thought it was just an empty drawn frame (new, yellow colored plastic from Mann Lake). I think I did not put enough bees in when I made the split. Therefore there was not enough to warm the brood, and no foragers. I think I both starved them and caused some chilled brood. I placed a full frame of capped honey in nthe nuc from one hive and a frame of brood along with its nurse bees from another hive. What do you think. I feel hesitant to feed sugar syrup because I had a huge problem with robbing a couple of weeks ago in one other hive. No signs of mites but I havent done an actual sugar roll test.
