Harvey, the bees will not care about being moved into a different box as long as you keep the frames in the same order and the hive in the same place, its kind of like what we do when we install nucs.
Just leave them alone after that until you need to inspect again.
When did you hive them? You should be able to inspect them now shouldn't you?
If it was a swarm then you should have a mated queen already laying.
When we install packages we can check them after a week, actually we can open the hive to make sure the queen was released from the cage after 3 days.
We don't go tearing into the brood nest after 3 days but you can open the hive if you need to look in.
If you have a problem with anything you need to know sooner than later so if they have been there a week I would at least peek in on them.
Joelel, most of the time when you hear beeks say syrup they are talking about sugar water, which is a kind of a syrup, which can be various ratios, 1:1, 2:1, the reverse and oh so many other possiblities.
All of it is referred to as syrup, fall syrup, spring syrup etc. because you feed different ratios at different times.
Entrance feeders can be a problem as well and many beeks will tell you to avoid using them because they can cause robbing.
I use them inside my topbar hives.
If you have a booming hive the entrance reducer needs to be taken off so there isn't a traffic jam and then anything can get through and rob, even with an entrance reducer small hive beetles can get in. They don't just walk in the front door, they can get in any nook and cranny and they actually like to hang out on the inner cover.
I have used top feeders and jars with no problems at all, the top feeder is inside the hive and the jars can be used inside the hive with a super over them or can be used in holes cut into a migratory cover.
As far as feeding outside the hive, its called community feeding or open feeding and alot of people who have several or many hives feed that way.
It should not cause robbing if you have enough for everyone and you feed away from the hive as Kathy said.
The poultry feeders work great, I just put some small stones in the reservoir so the bees don't drown and I also have used a top feeder with the floats and that worked really well.
They aren't going to go into a hive to rob if there is a feeder of "syrup" sitting out in the open for the taking.
I have done it because I have 10 hives hives that need to be fed all at once, if I feed them all seperately and one hive or more runs out before the others and I don't catch it then I can have robbing.
If you keep the community feeders filled up they all have an equal amount of food available to them.
If the other neighborhood colonies want to come over for lunch I am okay with that.
Also, can you please add your location to your profile so you are not hopelessly lost, it will help other members to answer your questions since many of them relate to a person's area as in weather, climate, flows etc.
Out of curiosity, what is it that you have figured out on your own to do differently and better than the rest of us beekeepers?
