Today I received two packages of bees. One package had a queen, and the other queen was dead.
I didn't know what to do so I just installed everything like the queen was in the cage. I have been trying to contact my supplier, but they will not return my call and I don't know what to do, I have called every place I could find online to get a queen overnighted, but everyone is out of queens for at least a few weeks. My question is what do I do, and what is going to happen if I have no queen in one hive? Are they going to move the hive with a queen?
Today is my first day of beekeeping and I though I was prepared for anything, any help would be great.
