Ok, 2 days shy of a month since one of our hives swarmed. Two weeks ago all the queen cells were opened at the bottom but no signs of the queen, now its been another 2 weeks since I opened the hive. Gonna take a peak this afternoon and hopefully see something. Gonna be looking for some eggs in the brood bog. I just wonder how this hot dry weather would affect a newly mated queen. I have been feeding the hive 1:1 sugar syrup through the top cover. Fingers crossed. I'll post whet I find.
