This is continuing from my thread Requeening a hive ..... Hive 1 4 weeks ago, place new marked queen. 3 weeks ago, no marked queen. Queen cell with larvea inside. 2 weeks ago, no sign of a queen and no brood. Workers were starting to cap honey. 1 week ago, no brood, no queen. Today - same Hive 2 Nature is doing her job well. This hive has a HUGE queen and she is laying well. Will Hive 1 make a queen if I take a frame with larvea from Hive 2 and put in it? What are my chances of saving Hive 1? I am in southeast GA, so we still have things blooming for a bit. Hives are close to watermelon field (which is finished for the season) and soybeans (recently planted).
