HI Everyone
I have a four frame nuc that has no queen and worker bee laying eggs. What should I do? Combine them with a stronger hive?
Any guidance will be appreciated

Yes combine, but by way of shaking the bees out onto the grass and let them find their way into other hives.

Shaking them out is the best way to go. The laying workers will either stop laying if they get in a hive that smells like open brood, or the queenright hives will kill the laying workers for you.
