I inspected 3 different hives yesterday. All 3 hives were strong. I do not think that they have recently swarmed. They all had eggs, larvae, and capped worker brood, so I felt they were queen right. But they all had small queens that looked like virgin queens. And I did not find a 2nd queen in any of the hives. Do the queens sort of decrease in size in the fall?
