I just started bee keeping i had a hive at work for 7 years it was a large crate 4' x 4' and and bees took up in it. i bought a hive and took brood, honey,and empty combs.cut them into emty frames and 5 lb of bees took them home. then they were robed by bees. also i did not get the queen.i went back the next week with another hive to get the rest of the hive and someone got to it first took the whole crate.now i have a hive with no queen but i do have drones and the bees are doing good. what to do now its four weeks plus now.no queen cells.
