Another Queenless Hive
I got into my strongest hive and pulled a full frame of brood out and an additional frame they had just started drawing, but which had eggs already in it. I put those in the bowtie hive. I also fed every hive 2:1 sugar/water. If they have a lazy queen, then the brood and the feed should knock her back into action. If they had no queen, then they now have the resources to make one. Easy fix as long as I'm patient. In a month they should be going and if I feed like crazy, then they should be built up enough to get through the winter.
