I went out an hour ago to check my hive. It looked like a bigger than normal cluster of bees on the outside (like all of them) so I opened the observation window and there were only about ten bees inside. The small comb they had made several days ago was completely bare. Will bees continue to work in a new hive if there is no queen? And if my queen is gone is there somewhere to buy one this late in the season? I am going back out now to put a baggie feeder inside, since I have been feeding with a jar right outside the entrance.
