I inspected my hive today after are-queening a couple weeks ago. I spotted the queen and seems the hive has accepted her. What I am perplexed by is there’s no capped honey, not many capped brood cells, and I’m not seeing pollen cells either. I am a newbie, so maybe the cells really aren’t empty and I have an untrained eye?
Some additional info…I live in southern Oregon where it’s been extremely hot and dry and lots of fires. I did put in an internal feeder a couple weeks ago.
