Right have put in 2 different frames from 2 nd hive still no queen cells but no brood other than drone. Have decided to buy in another queen. Decided to sieve the bees and found a large normal looking queen........put this in a 2 frame nuc and placed new queen in the hive. Still got the tape and...
Looked in today
Bees very calm on the comb, not building queen cells on eggs I put in from the other hive .........but if I had a drone layer in there would they build queen cells?
There was a few drone cells scattered about one frame.
I have two hives and one of them is queenless..... I haven’t had much time lately and it has been queenless for a while 3 weeks maybe more. Is it too late to let them do their thing with a frame from my other hive or should I buy in a queen?
