Package almost gone

Checked on the status of the diseased hive this morning and found less than 1,000 or so left.  Still bees coming out to die on the ground.  I guess the activity that I saw around the entrance was from the neighbors, robbing the food that I left in the entrance feeder.  All other hives doing fine.  Probably weeks before I get results and definitely no time left for fumigation.  Viewing through the observation window I can see that there are no brood cells capped.  Guess the queen didn't make it.  Later
