Checked my hives yesterday and I am perplexed. Swarm hive doesn't have any brood cells and all the stored honey has mostly been eaten up. I started sugar syrup and pollen patties. I also took off the top deep and combined them into a single deep. Nuke hive had only a few exposed larvae and capped brood. The 2 deep boxes have lots of exposed honey and some spots of pollen, but none of it is capped. I assume they are starting to feed on it. I added pollen patties to this hive too. Question: Is it normal for there to be none or very little brood this time of year? I didn't see either hive's queen, but I know the nuke hive queen is there due to the larvae. I assume the fall flow stunk and they have started wintering? I read that with no flow, they focus on feeding instead of egg laying. Am I in trouble?
