I purchased three 5 pound packages in may. I installed them and left them for a week. I checked and found the queen box empty saw no eggs. The next time I opened them up was two weeks later, bad weather wouldn't allow me to get in any earlier. When I opened them up I found only drone brood in all of them. I couldn't find a queen in any and assumed that she was gone. I waited a little longer just in case and nothing changed. I talked to the guy that I got the packages from and he said that maybe a worker took over as queen, in all three hives. I was told that the only thing that I could do to rectify this situation was to take the hive apart remove all the bees and that they would all return except the worker queen. I purcased new queens and waited a week. I opened them up to find no bees at all. I have been doing this for 12 years and have never experienced anything like this, Any feedback?
