Doesn't seem to be a sufficient amount of bees there. Brood is pretty much non existant. Didn't see the queen again this time I'm guessing? Hard to give advice with just a few frame pics.
I am far from an expert but my mentor tells me to inspect every 7 days. In the spring, he says that I should inspect every 5 days to catch swarm cells early. I would do a newspaper combine with another weak hive to make it stronger. This is after making absolutely certain there is no queen in the hive.As per advice, I've kept the entrance reducers in place on the smallest opening. I'm there once a week to mow. Sometimes I drive past. The entrances never look crowded to me, so I assume that is good. I look in every 7 to 10 days, which I thought was OK. Did I cause the problem by going in too much? I need to salvage this situation soon. I'm wondering about adding it to the other hive. Would it cause a problem there?
