Last week I had a really strong hive, lots of bees, lots of activity. I stopped feeding sugar syrup last week after reading some posts here.
Today I notice there is hardly any activity at the hive entrance, so I open the hive.
I have one deep and two supers on top. The first super is about 1/4 or more full of honey. The deep looks like some capped brood in the middle frames, but not as much as I was expecting. I guess I should ask an experienced beekeeper to help me.
Does anyone have any ideas?? Is the queen dead, or did the hive swarm?
