Well, I'm in a little of a pickle. I have two hives and am not sure what I should do next. I tried to requeen on june 5 and had both queens killed. One I thought was queenless, but must have swarmed and there was a virgin in there. The other (my strong hive) had a queen that I found and pinched and waited a couple of days before I introduced the new queen. As I said both killed there queens. Two weeks after this attempt I opened them up and found a queen in both. My stronger hive then swarmed. I have no brood or eggs in both. After an inspection yesterday I can find no queens, still no eggs or brood. My weaker hive has not seen an egg in over five weeks now. They both are very testy. They both have lots of stores and honey. I moved the top deep up to be a honey super after they had backfilled it and both have them almost all caped, but still will not draw comb on the medium supers I placed in between the deeps. There is still room in the lower deep to lay. Not sure what to do now. I need to get these hives queenright. Do I need to buy a nuc and do a paper combine for the weaker hive. I'm concerned that even if I do get only a queen in there laying the numbers will be to slight to get the colony back to good. There is still a good amount of bees in there now. The stronger hive that swarmed 12 days ago has not seen an egg for over 3 1/2 weeks. There are still lots of bees in the stronger hive. I hope this all makes sense. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
