Re: New, can't find queen
You lost a lot for sure. A good season here in New England. A wee bit more rain is needed to make it a banner year. Despite that your goal is to make sure they have a large happy healthy broodnest going into winter with enough stores to survive. Don't stop feeding and if you don't see them bringing in pollen consider throwing a pollen patty on them. I doubt you will need that though as goldenrod pollen is coming in by the boatloads here right now.
Read a book or two and get into the bee groove. Beekeeping for Dummies is actually a great book. I suggest it to many people.
Raising Vermont Bees one mistake at a time.
