I was a founding member of the flow hives in 2015 but I’ve only just got around to setting up my hive now. I purchased a nuc three weeks ago with 4 frames in it and transferred it to my brood box. I did my first complete inspection and found what I think is healthy capped brood, drone brood, not a lot of honey or pollen but they did draw out 3 frames of new comb.
Two problems… I can’t find the queen anywhere!!! Can you see her?? She’s supposed to be marked.
And second, I feel like there’s a LOT of empty comb and don’t think I saw any larvae. Can anyone offer a second opinion? Is this a healthy hive???
I’ve labelled frame numbers and sides on the video, along with what I thought I saw. Forgive the music… it was rights free
