Queen-less Hive.

We are grateful you are here

Queen-less Hive.

Here’s the info: -Region: PNW

-First year beekeeper

-Last 2 inspections I have not been able to find the queen

-Zero brood comb

-Way more drones than I’m used to seeing (not sure if that’s relevant)

-one maybe on a queen cell but it’s not capped and has been around for 3ish weeks unchanged

-A marked plateau in colony population.

-No swarm

Am I correct in thinking the queen is absent? Is it too late to introduce a new queen?
