Queenless after swarm?
Hive swarmed on June 16th. Was unable to catch swarm. Inspected hive on June 25th, there appeared to be no brood, eggs or larvae minus a very few drone looking cells. A couple frames had queen cells, but they were open and empty. The hive was packed full of capped honey, nectar and some pollen, about 85-95%.
Is it normal to have no brood after a swarm? My understanding is I should have had some left from the old queen.
Should I requeen immediately or wait the 14 days to see if a new queen was reared and is laying before doing anything?
I am in Central Lower Michigan. The hive is set up with 2 brood deep boxes. A honey super has been added since the swarm.
