Inspection

Today was not a great inspection

We found no eggs and very little larvae and very little capped brood but 1 capped queen cell. Despite adding the 3rd super they have done nothing with it but using brood cells to store honey. A bit worrying. We left the queen cell. Looks like they have either swarmed or the queen has not been very strong

We put the empty super closest to the brood box as I had read that you could do this although not what I recall my course advising.

Decided to email my bee buddy peter for some advice.
