In June of this year I removed a small swarm of honeybees from a neighbors shed. I placed their combs on the frames inside of one of the empty boxes. I did not mess with them until a couple of days ago. I opened the hive and they had not made any progress of building anything besides their comb. They have not produced any honey in their combs. I am seeing capped brood but unable to locate the queen. I have no idea what kind these are unfortunately. They are black with black and yellow butts( no they are not yellow jackets). I do have pictures of these along with the other honeybees I have purchased which are Carolinas.
Can anyone help me out with this?
