I Mero and I live two hours south of Sydney in Australia. I live with my husband, several dogs, goats, chooks and a very angry duck and a new beehive as of October 2013. After an inspection today I feel we have problems with our hive, possibly disease or maybe no Queen. I'm not sure what to make of the comb covered in bees but with no capped honey or even brood. Some brown capping on parts of the comb. Would love some advice.
