My hive was tipped a week ago. It's a nuc I installed around the beginning of the month and I know it had a queen because I saw her several times. However, I checked on Thursday and could not find the queen and did not see any eggs. I will be checking again tomorrow morning. If this hive is queenless, will it right itself? Should I buy a new queen?

If they have eggs and if they have population enough, yes they normally will raise a new queen on their own.

It was tipped over off the bottom board and the top fell off - all the syrup from the feeder was on the ground. I suspect a cow tipped it. There are no eggs, however there is larva of different ages.

P.S. I meant to say I installed in the beginning of June

Pics would help…there was that spot at the top of one of the frames that looked like a peanut shell…could be a queen cell they're raising

But I don't have enough experience identifying them yet……
