"It shouldn't be an problem. The only issues is if the hive is still stong enough to raise a good queen."

"Eric,  When a bar of eggs from another hive is installed are the existing workers ok with a new brood if they are different types of bees? "

"Eric, your offer is very generous. I will inspect again this week and seriously look for brood and queen.  I'm usually hesitant to brush the workers off the comb but I may be necessary to uncover for a closer look.  It seems like a…"

"Thanks Jeremy,  This is encouraging. I plan to inspect again this week and do a more serious search for brood and the queen.  Jeannie"

Jeremy McKellar replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Patterns in the group Topbar hive users.
"I have had several queens that took brood breaks during the height of summer.  Not sure if its caused by forage or other things like humidity or temp.  Now that it has cooled a little and we got some rains hopefully there will be a nice…"

"The bees not drawing new comb is not a big surprise. Until the last week we have been very dry and there has not been much nectar available. If you need a bar of eggs, let me know. I also have an extra queen that I could let you have. She's an…"

"Thanks Eric and Chris,  When I put the bees in they were vigorous comb builders.  The hive expanded quickly. There has been no new comb on bars I added a few weeks ago.   The lack of foraging may have stressed the hive and thus…"

Chris replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Hi Jeannie, I agree with Eric.  If you can’t find the queen, searching for eggs and larva is the next best thing.  Often times, I can’t locate the queen but I do find evidence that she was active in the past few days when I see…"

Eric Bunnel replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Seasonal Laying Pattern? in the group East Mountain Beeks
"Did you see any eggs or larva? If not you may have lost your queen. Look carefully and if you don't see any I would give them a comb of eggs or young larva ASAP and see what they do. This time of year they should still be able to raise their…"

Seasonal Laying Pattern?

I did not find the queen or capped brood, although many combs were heavily covered with workers. No evidence of disease or queen cells or dead bees on the ground.I see many foraging around the property and their temperament was mellow on inspection.Less pollen is being carried in now than in the spring, but there are more wild…See More

"During a hive inspection today I discovered the gals have built a full size comb on the last follower board. Do I take that off and harvest the honey or leave it on? "

Elizabeth Lake replied to Jeannie Pace's discussion Inspections in the group Topbar hive users.
"In a perfect world you will find the 'rainbow' of honey, pollen, brood.  Not every frame is perfect though so sometimes you won't and that isn't something to worry about unless it's a problem like no brood at all or…"

Wasn't Olivia Carril GREAT?  I ran out and bought a copy of her book (so now I can return the library's copy!!)

If I see she's ever giving another local talk I'll be SURE to post it here!
