Lost queen

We are grateful you are here

Lost queen

So I apparently have either lost or had a queen die. A hive that was caught in a swarm trap and transferred to a langstroth hive a few weeks ago appears to be queenless. Today’s inspection I noticed only capped brood, no eggs or larvae, and the workers seems much more irritable than in the last inspection. Being early June should I just buy a new queen or try to let them raise a new one with a frame from another hive.
