My top bar hive that was started from a swarm last year had either become queenless or had swarmed. I only found one emergency queen cell in the hive during my last inspection. I added a small comb of eggs and larvae to hopefully give the bees additional resources to make another queen if needed.
Only 7-16-2011 I checked the hive to see how things were going. I am happy to report that the new queen is laying a very solid pattern and has been working to fill several frames with eggs that are now capped.
