So this is really just me expressing my bummedness (thats a word right?).... I had a hive that wasn't doing real well. Bought a hygentic "Pol Lin" queen from california (marked) and installed her. Hive accepted her and she was laying like a mad woman. I was so proud. I checked on her and the hive July 2nd and all looked like it was coming along nicely. I left her for 9 days and checked again... NO queen around and the bees had 1 queen cell going. I looked in the queen cell and there was a large larvae. I think I must have somehow killed my marked queen. Though honestly I'm not sure how. I found her in the middle of a nice frame of brood, put it back in carefully, and slid it over to where it was. I know I didn't roll her. Oh well, I'm just feeling guilty and bummed about it and wanted to vent. The good news is that they have a new queen from her line going. I hope she's able to get mated well. There aren't that many hives (that I know of) around.
