I think I lost my queen about 10 days ago. I believe the colony is in the process of requeening, but I won’t know if that is successful until I can back in, once the weather improves.
Question: by the time the queen is mated and starts laying, and these hatch, I’m guessing it will be a good 6 - 7 weeks post the death of the queen. Will i have any bees left by that time?
What has been others experience on total bee colony decline when losing a queen?
