I just checked one of my strongest hives and there is only drone brood. The queen must have been lost somehow and it appears that there is a laying worker. I'd like to split this hive in 2 and combine it with 2 weaker hives or if this isn't a viable idea combine one of the weaker hives with it. With the laying worker I'm not sure how to do this. Any suggestions? This is my first year as a beekeeper and things were going well until this event.
