Honey bees lived just fine until man came along and began to capture them. This is called keeping bees and managing them. In the wild they are just wild feral bees.
Some general rules:
A hive needs food to survive during all times during the year. It is critical during times of brood rearing.
If you have managed your hive well and they gathered some honey for you fine. But leave enough for the bees to survive the rainy season!
What happens if you see no eggs, larva, and some capped brood! You do see what looks like queen cells that have hatched. You most likely have a hive with a virgin queen.
Nothing, just wait until almost all the brood has emerged. About that time the virgin queen will be mated and start laying eggs. Look for eggs and signs the hive has a new queen.
If all brood emerges and you find no evidence of any egg laying in the hive.
If you see this then you have some management issues to deal with.
