Inspection of Second Hive 6/28/12

I checked on the hive with the missing queen this afternoon.  Still no sign that the hive has created a queen. The remaining capped brood was emerging as I was inspecting the hive. I saw the last of the capped worker bees and drones emerging from their cells.  The call came today that a new queen is on the way and I’ll install her tomorrow.

Above are some photos of the hive and the comb they built on the bottom of the frames in the lower brood box.
