Many months ago, I posted here concerning bee's that have taken up residents in my camper, first, i had to get a beehive, so i built one. now i've never did a cut out before, so this was my first time. Here is the twist....as i was cutting out the combs, I could not find the Queen, I've might have gotten her, but i was not sure and was not paying attention while placing the combs into the frames. but the good story is i had retrieved two queen sacks which i had placed at the Vary top of the box (where the feeding hole is). anyway, I came back the next day, and noticed one of the Queen sacks was empty. I figured, since i had a Queen Excluder in place, she would not be able to climb into the main hive, so i lifted the top box off and behold, there she sat. I took the excluder and flipped it over. A few days later i was watching the bee's come and go when i noticed the Queen came out on the landing, stood there and smiled as if she approves with her new home (OK, i added the smile part), she turned around and went back into the hive. As far as the other Queen goes, I have no clue as to what happened to her, She might have escaped thru the top worker exit. 3 weeks later, I was doing a hive inspection and noticed one of the cutout combs was about 98% covered with brown caped cells. I did have some hive beetles, but the bee's was doing such a good job of keeping them cleaned out, I didn't have the heart to interfere with their routine....for now anyway. However, as a newbe at this, I have questions.... I'm not seeing any drones, at first, when the queen hatched, i had drones coming and going, but i don't see any now. should i be worried?. The bee's was starting to build on the plastic foundation and then stopped, for what reason i don't know. it appears that the combs from the cutout had some honey in them, now they are empty, should i replace them with new foundation sheets?.
