I have a hive that swarmed in early July. I missed the swarm. About a week later numerous queen cells. I let the hive take its course for about 3 weeks. Now I do not have any queen cells. Some larvae in a good pattern, but mostly honey in the two brood boxes. I also have a super on top without an excluder but very little drawn comb. The queen, if there is one has plently of room to lay, a couple of frames in each brood box and the entire super. Did it take this long for a new queen to emerge and become fertile? I am thinking this is why so few larvae, but plenty of room. There are probably 10 frames combined of capped honey in the brood boxes. Can I take a couple and crush and strain? Many frames have drawn comb that was used for eggs before, but they are now cleaned out and ready for new eggs. Let me know some of the things you might do at this point.
