I installed a nuc April 15th this year. There's another beekeeper in the area with 5 years experience. He has been helping me watch the progress of the hive. Both of us have never seen the queen. I have lots of brood and honey. The bees have multiplied many times over. It is a healthy hive, BUT I can NOT find the queen. He thinks she must be hiding from us as we move and inspect the frames. Do I really need to find her until I'm ready to requeen next year or the next?
