I have had a hive that I know has been queenless since mid-October. It had a huge population that has now dwindled to a single medium hive body. Combining it had been on my To-Do list for a long time, but I kept putting it off. I went to that bee yard yesterday thinking that I would be shaking out a laying worker. Surprisingly, I could find no evidence of eggs or brood from a LW.

My question is, does late fall/winter suppress the tendency/drive of workers to start laying eggs in the absence of QMP?
