Hey guys - I was just out into my bees today and discovered that one of my hives apparently has become weak, but I believe my other hives have been robbing it out because I did not see a lot of honey and I did not see a lot of capped brood (compared to my other hives) and at first I thought my queen was dead, but I did see her. I have one VERY strong hive that had honey out to the 10th frames - solid & capped - as well as one full super of honey capped and another super 1/2 full. So I thought I would take a couple of the deep frames that are solid honey and some of the super frames of honey and put into the weak hive and close the entrance down. We still have a good couple of weeks of honey flow here so do you think that would encourage my queen to lay?? If not could I take a frame of brood from the other hive & put it into the weakened hive or would that be taking a chance on weakening the strong hive? All my other hives have a lot of honey & capped brood. I do have one other that I think I will close the entrance down and watch for robbing from it. I may just close all of them down for now???
