I did a split about 4 weeks ago with a hive that had 3 swarm cells that were hard capped. Checked them yesterday and found this beautiful huge queen. She was so plump that I don't see how she cold get in a cell to lay. In fact she had not laid anything. No brood, no eggs, nada. I felt like she should have been laying, but after splitting we had cold weather and wet weather. So she may not have got mated. I also noted a big die off over the last week, but there were still plenty of bees to sustain the colony. I requeened this colony with a bought mated queen and took a frame of brood and this non laying queen and put them in a NUC and moved to another yard. Any possibility she may mate yet or has she missed her chance. Hate to pinch such a fine specimen. she is much bigger than any of my other queens including the bought one I requeened with.
