To start off let me state they I'm trying to see a difference of running half of my 10 hive without queen excluders and the other with. Well at some point in spring I must have trapped a queen above my excluder, this is a first for me. Well as you can imagine these were on frames of honey and she just never was able to lay new eggs. When I went in 3 weeks ago to get the honey supers off I realized what I had done. Well I took the honey off and immediately got her back in the brood box. She was about the excluded for probably a few weeks to a month. Once I got her back in the brood box she hasn't laid at all. It's been 3 weeks now. I figure I killed her drive by honey bounding her I guess. I took her out and put her in a queen holder with about 10 workers and taking her old colony and newspaper combining it with a smaller queen right hive in the morning. What are y'all s thought on this Queen? She just walks around the frames like she knows she needs to lay but doesnt. Has 4 frames of pulled comb empty for 3 weeks. Should I just dispatch her and make queen lure or take another chance in a small nuc?
