I posted a request for advice earlier and it was suggested that I be patient. While I agree I need patience, I have more observations and questions. For a little review of the history, we have been wanting to try hand at raising bees. We also wanted to try the feral approach (catching a swarm or getting them from a bee removal service). We were contacted by a bee removal service and got a "box" of bees about 9 days ago. We had the hive, frames, feeders, etc. already, so we immediately moved the bees into the hive. We setup a sugar water feeder in the entry. We closed the entry with grass. The bees appeared to start setting up home in the hive. The person we got the bees from assured me there was a queen. The hive is a Langstroth deep with 10 frames (9 with foundation and one with a starter strip). In the 9 days, the bees have drawn comb on all frames. The is a yellow liquid (I assume is honey) that is not capped and there is some clear liquid, also not capped. All frames have some of both types of liquid. I did a hive inspection on day 5 to see what was going on inside the hive. I don't see any eggs or indication of laying. I also did not see the queen. I did see drone. I decided to check the hive again today. I noticed more comb laid and more liquid, but still none capped. I also noticed this morning some bees returning with white packets on their hind legs (assume this is pollen). I am beginning to believe the hive is queenless. I would like other opinions. If this is the case, I have an option to get some frames with brood and possibly queen cells from a hive on my daughter's land. I understand that I could get a frame from her that had early brood or queen cells and introduce it into my hive and the bee will raise a queen for themselves. I would really appreciate any advice and help. Thanks.
