Opinon on who refunds a dud queen ???
I have a queen I purchased and hived her on the 5/11 . I checked the box and 5/14 and they had chewed thru the candy and released her . This was a deep 5 frame split with 1 frame of honey, 2 frames of capped and open brood,pollen and eggs in different stages and 2 partially drawn frames. I fed the new nuc 1/2 pint of syrup . On 5/23 I checked and no new signs of eggs , I found the queen, they had chewed the mark off her, but the hive was acting normal and had a few workers flying in and out with pollen, no queen cells . I know this company gets its queen second hand should I give her a few more days and check again or just ask for a another ? This is a first for me, usually if a mated queen I introduce fails it because she was killed ????
