Now if you want to replace the original queen, then the hive needs to be queenless for at least 24 hrs before placing a new queen in the hive. Then use a proper queen box w/candy to allow for a slow queen introduction to the hive.

I have just opened the hive for the first time. I don't see any signs of a queen. No capped brood cells and no eggs or brood. I'm afraid I don't have a queen and I'm trying to start a new hive late in the year. And I'm a rookie.
