Several threads regarding new swarms and packages contain comments that workers won't bring in pollen if there is no open brood, as there is no need for it as feed. My hive that went queenless, and has only capped and emerging brood, is still bringing in pollen. Granted, there has been a shift to more nectar (or water), just by looking at bees coming in, but two or three workers out of ten come back with pollen. In fact, the hive appears headed to being pollen bound. They aren't backfilling the brood frames with nectar, but seem to be filling recently emptied brood cells with bee bread. I left capped emergency cells, I have not given them a frame of eggs or open brood. Thoughts?
