My hive has slowed down I went into it today and took the honey supers off and they were practically sucked dry with a fermented honey smell. I think the queen is just raising drones. are drones the ones that make all the noise?

I think you need to look around a little better. Do you see capped worker brood, properly laid eggs, How many bees, how much brood.
They do slow down at this time of year, but from what you said, a better inspection is in order.
