I have a colony that the queen disappeared from. I put in frames of eggs and brood but the eggs disappeared and the brood hatched out. I put in a frame that has a queen cup and a few more frames of brood and started feeding the colony to try to make it strong enough to survive the winter. Is it a good choose to try to save the colony or if I should just combine it with a stronger colony. We have mild winters here in Virginia and I think that the colony can gain enough strength to survive.
