Hi all, I have introduced my bees they are working hard and I am feeding them at this point, still gets cold here and things are just starting to bloom. I have one super, with 10 frames in it, they have worked on about 4 of them building them out, and I even had a bunch capped today, makes me a bit relieved. The question I have do I need to put more frames in the upper super yet?
No worries -- wait until they have filled up 7 or 8 of the frames fully before you add another hive body.
I only have the feeder in there at this point. Also when the queen lays an egg will that be the only thing in the cell as I can see little eggs but the cell is dry on some of them, could that be her work today? Sorry for all the newbie questions but I just can't quite worrying that I may have done something wrong, I dont want to mess it up. thanks
When the queen lays, there will be a little speck of an egg (like a clear grain of rice) at the bottom of the cell. If you can see them, good work! It's a clear sign she's around and laying. Have fun!
