I installed my 2 hives fri evening and just checked them a little while ago,
my queen cage on the left hive was on the bottom board with the queen still in it, candy almost gone. I brought her back up & re-situated her, the girls were friendly through all of this.
my hive on the right was situated around the queen cage, her still contained in it, and candy almost gone.
When do you pros suggest I open again for re-inspection & queen cage removal?
ps: I have a screen bottom board on each hive & tonite will check underneath to make sure queen cage is where it's supposed to be.
thnx for the advice, JP
