My first hive swarmed @ 3 weeks ago. I posted for advice and was told not to mess with them for a while. 3 days ago they were working like crazy(100s comming and going per minute). The last 2 days I noticed they slowed down to maybe 10 per minute. so i went inside....oh :no: no eggs, no larva no capped brood. only a few emerging drones and some queen cells open and sealed @7.. Do i wait, or order a new queen ... I live in Maine and my only local scorce for a queen is on vacation until the 10th of August. I do have a buddy that I can get a few frames of brood from if need be. Could someone let me know where I can buy a good Itialian queen, that are good in the northeastern winters??? I hope there is enough time to save them.
