Re: My queen died
Often it means that there is a queen that was accidentally shaken into the package (or at least that's what I've read here). Same thing happened to me last Saturday. I was fortunate enough to be able to go pick up a new queen right away, so I did and released her Monday evening. I'll check on her in a few days. Your colony probably will be okay waiting another week, and by the time she arrives, you'll be able to have a good idea whether there already is a queen in your hive. If so, what to do with the new queen is another question. If not, then she's there and you can introduce her.
As always, take note of my signature line....
I have one TBH and have yet to overwinter it. Don't do anything soley on my advice!
