are Virgin queens a lost cause this time of year in Northern California (Bay Area)?
I have a queenless hive that is actively building out 4 queen cells (from a frame of eggs I donated from another hive). My concern is that during a my recent inspections, I haven't seen any drones inside any of my 3 hives. I've heard some people say that there are drones year round in the bay area, others say that they are usually kicked out of the hives by this time of year. Anyone have opinions on this?
