I have two former laying workers hives that have been shaken out and requeened. The queens have been accepted but has not started laying. I believe there is not enough bees left in the hives. One hive has about 2 1/2 frames of bees and the other has about 1 frame. It has been a month and the queens are still alive but not laying yet. I have battled robbing on both hives.
I have two booming hives that I could steal from if I had to.
What should I do to help thing along?
