Hive made it though winter with a handful of bees and their queen… I swear it was working layer hive. Confirmed by 2 other master bee keepers. I split the hive and suppressed the ovaries and requeened half. Expected this half to die out over winter. Now I have the opposite problem and I found her on my Dad’s birthday who passed away a few years ago. So I’m a little attached to her. I guess I’ll take some bees from another hive? 🤷🏻♀️ At least I got her marked. Oddest thing ever to open a hive and find 30 bees and a queen. Thinking about moving them to a queen castle.
