The other day I discovered that Hive #4, the original East Hive, was without a queen. So, I ordered two new queens from Long Lane and installed them this morning. I split the hive into two, and gave each a queen. Unfortunately, I would later learn that one was not accepted, so I was left with one hive accepting the queen and recombined the hive boxes. As of last look, this queen is doing well and laying lots of eggs!
