Hi all. One of our 6 hives has a strange situation. The queen was a result of supercedure. After 24 days she still hadn't started laying and the bees were unusually tetchy so we put a frame of eggs from another hive just in case they wanted to replace her but they just capped them all and no Q cells. We are now, at least 20 days after she would have emerged and still no eggs. Can a queen take so much longer to start laying? Also the bees are not as calm as they used to be so could she be a failed queen?
