So I "rescued" a hive that had moved into a bird house at the end of September. They had built comb all around the outside of the birdhouse. I cut the comb free and moved everyone into a hive. Things seemed to be going great: comb building, new brood, lots of foraging, but then I opened them up last week after noticing a change in behavior. There were no signs of a queen. Most frames were full of honey and there were no signs of brood or eggs. I waited a week and checked again today, still no signs of eggs or brood, just honey.

I am fairly new to bee keeping. This is my second hive. Should I be worried? Is this normal fall behavior? Am I queenless??

I have another hive that is queen right and doing well.

What are my options at this point?? Any advice will be appreciated.
