Hi I am a new beekeeper I just recently installed my first 2 hives ever! Everything went smoothly and I watched them for about a week. One hive looked like it was grand central station, while the other looked like it was empty, aside from maybe a couple of bees coming out. They are set up exactly the same and are 6 feet apart. A week after i had installed them I looked into the busy hive there where tons of bees, the other had a handful of bees (less then 75) looks like the bees in that hive moved over to the other hive. Did the bees just like the other queen better? Now 2 and a half weeks down the road both queens have been let loose the busy hive has done a good bit of drawing on all the combs with pollen, brood, and nectar, but the other hive looks like they haven't touched the combs. So my question is can I save the failing hive? What are my options? Is it too soon to try and transfer brood? Would the brood even make it with that few worker bees? Also I keep my bees in Louisiana if that helps. Thanks!
