Another Queenless hive. Queen 21 seen, all good, but Queen 18 is definitely missing – didn’t see her last week, no eggs, in fact no brood at all.
I couldn’t see a Queen in the hive at all. I took a frame of eggs from another hive to see if they start emergency Queen cells, and will leave them alone until next week
Two hives were re-queened last week, so leaving those for another week before checking, though I did see one of them walking the frames when I removed the Queen cage yesterday – quick open to check they were out of the cages, removed cages and closed up right away, no inspection as I didn’t want to disturb them too much.
