I have just come back from 3 weeks holiday to discover that one of my two colonies is queenless. Does anyone out there have a mated queen for sale? All the regular commercial suppliers have finished for the year.

Are you sure your hive is Q-? My queen had a nice rest this time last year for a couple of weeks and I think she is doing the same this year. No brood whatsoever last weekend but I am hoping for some soon. The bees seem quite happy though and storing up supplies for the winter. If no brood this week I will think about when to put in a test frame. Did you try this?

Greg1967 Capped brood but no uncapped could just mean that your queen is resting like mine did last year. Try a test frame before getting a new queen just to make sure.
