Sorry, forgot to mention the specifics. The hive is 3 weeks old, started from a 5 frame nuc. That was just split with a newly mated queen, who is laying a good pattern from what I could see. I only saw about 3 hive beetles, there could have been more, But I took the hive apart and moved frames around, as I was doing this I was looking into the bottom of the hive as well. I have the hive on pavers, then a hive stand that stands about 3 feet tall. I was aware that SHB love pollen patties, that;s why I only gave them enough to last a couple days, then see how they are doing. The apiary where I got the nuc suggested I feed for a bit until they get more established. They are bringing in grocery bags full of pollen. So should I stop feeding them the sugar syrup and pollen patty?
