Has anyone had terrible luck with returning mates queens? All six of my hives made it through winter, then all six have swarmed (caught all six by some miracle) but five of the six currently have no eggs. It’s been over three weeks since all of the swarms and still nothing. I literally witnessed queens being born in one hive and and still nothing. I transferred eggs into one of the hives that appeared queenless a week ago, today they merely capped all the brood. No attempt at making a queen cell. Only my third year, but by far the wildest weather (Western PA) I’ve had to deal with as a beek. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
