Hi.. I have a hive that barely survive the winter. No brood. Cannot find a queen but there are a few hundred bees that are bringing in pollen. Still some honey in the hive.
I don't think it's worth introducing just a queen, correct? So I was going to install a new package in the hive. Do I need to be concerned about the old bees attacking the queen.. I'll leave her in the queen cage and let the bees release her. And do I need to be concerned about the old bees and the new ones fighting?
By the way, no sign of disease. I believe the queen failed. Thanks for any advice.
