Queen died, now what?

We are grateful you are here

Queen died, now what?

I’m fairly certain our queen’s died. There’s been very few bees outside the hive despite it being very hot so I opened the hive real quick today. There’s very few bees inside, and it doesn’t look like there’s any brood. I didn’t have time to look for her today, but I’m gonna try tomorrow. I’m not hopeful.

So I guess the question is now what? I can get a nuc or a queen but this is the second attempt at a colony in 2 years that’s collapsed at this time of year. I’ve got a decent amount of comb with nectar at least. Was leaning on the side of getting another nuc since the hive had been doing will up until recently.
