On Saturday, 15 days post-install, I brought a second baggie of feed and a frame of brood to check on the trap-out, laying-worker, queen intoroduction colony. My heart sank when I saw all the dead bees in introduction frame. I immediately denied any bess could get in and looked at the stapled seams. Turns out that alll dead were the original attendants and the queen was still ALIVE!!!
I popped the cork off the introducton frame, installed the frame of brood two frames over, and filled the baggie feeder with a quart of syrup. All nice and quick like. Wish the girls luck!h
