A week ago I introduced a new queen to my hive because i hadn't seen new brood in a month (although the super is so heavy I can't really check the bottom boxes). I was pretty sure they were queenless because since the hive swarmed, both hives have been doing poorly. I made sure there was no queen in the swarmed hive, then I placed them together. A couple days later I introduced the queen in the super. When I checked today, the queen cage was empty (but I placed the queen cage facing down so her corpse could have fallen out).
In the box above the super, I observed a really crap pattern on one frame. It looked like the bees had built it really quickly because there were towers with the eggs and the rest of the frame was flat. I saw lots of drones. I know theyre not laying workers cause I saw some worker cells, but I can't tell because the frame looked like it was built super quickly. I can't tell if this is just a crappy queen or that the queen just doesn't have anywhere to lay. What should I do?
