One of my hives seems to have lost its queen and been robbed. No capped honey and no signs of a laying queen. The population has dropped substantially, to about a quarter of its original number. Wondering at this late date whether it is better to try and combine the remaining bees with another small hive or to requeen. Inspected the hive today and see no signs of them raising a new queen. I am just afraid that they won't have time to build up enough stores to overwinter if I requeen. I am in North Carolina and daytime highs are still in the 80s. Thanks in advance for any advice.
