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?

I have been reading about a product called megabee. Has anyone used it and what were your impressions?

We had a thunderstorm today and I never saw so many bees all over the place around the hives a few minutes after the storm had passed. On my "booming" hives I have two deeps and 1 medium. Tomorrow I will do a though inspection to see how much they can afford to part with.

The healthy hives are going though a quart of sugar water and a inch or so of pollen patty per day. Lots of bees.
