Colony won’t accept queen

I split one of my hives early on the season and put a new queen in. After a week I went back in and the queen had emerged from the cage but there was no evidence that she was still there. I waited another week and introduced another queen. There were still no eggs when I put this one in. I waited another week and she emerged from the cage but there is no sign of a queen in the hive. I am not sure if they keep killing the introduced queens. I don't know what to do in order to keep this colony going. Anyone ever experience this? Any suggestions?
