I made the mistake of not checking a hive for about a month due to other engagements that had came up. I received a call from the individual where I had my hive saying she wasn't seeing much activity. I made it over last week for a inspection and found that my queen was gone and there was very little brood in the hive. I noticed that almost all of the brood frames were full of pollen and honey. The hive does have a honey super on it but virtually untouched. They did not make there own queen and could not find no young brood to do so with. I installed a new queen last Friday and checked last night and she was wondering around the hive. What do I need to do to make laying room or will they create it themselves?

Move the honey to the top and give her some place to lay at the bottom.

If your fall golden rod is strong in your area you could take half or more of the capped honey now and put the wet supers back on for more space.
