Hello--It was 63 degrees here in VA today so I couldn't wait to check on my 2hives. There were many dead bees in front of both hives and unfortunately among them was one dead queen. I popped the top cover on both hives and all looked good inside and tons of bees were out flying around from both hives. Did they replace the queen earlier and just now cleaned the hive out and tossed her out??? Will they survive if there is no queen. I didn't inspect further as they are both wrapped in tar paper. Thanks for your responses.
