    Default new queen is not laying

    My split had a queen cell that hatched 2 weeks ago. There has been heavy rains here. I have seen the queen 3 days ago, but there aren't any eggs. I have added a frame of brood once a week for 3 weeks including today. They have not made a queen cell. What do I do now?

    Leave them alone, wait a week, and check again. Good luck!

    You made a split and you say the queen emerged two weeks ago. Sometime between now and a week from now you should find eggs.
