One of my hives went queenless - I found out during an inspection on Saturday the 14th. The activity level had gone down, and when I opened the hive, there was no brood or honey. Up until then, they had been doing ok. I don't think that they were robbed, because I never saw any dead bees on the ground, or that kind of activity. I was able to get a queen, and put her in the next day. Checked them this past Friday, the queen was out, and they seemed much "happier". I started feeding them 1:1 and a pollen patty when I saw that they had no food, and they are taking that. The question is - should I consolidate the hive down to a Nuc and try to overwinter them that way, or hope that they can build up enough stores for the winter in the two deeps that they are in now? Any thoughts on overwintering nucs is appreciated. Thanks!
