I have decided I have no idea what the heck I am doing.
This I kinda like having a baby no matter how much you prepare for its arrival, once it gets here you feel TOTALLY inadequate and question you decision to have one.
What was I thinking crossed your mind many times.
Well I have lasted a week. Hoorah!!!!
Did a one week check and found at least some drawn comb on 6 of 8 frames. The only concern is there are some funky comb on some of the frames. It like they drew straight up off the foundation.
Need to know if I should break it off and let them rebuild or just leave it alone and they might fix?
Next does nectar and syrup look the same in cells before it is dehydrated? I saw a lot of clear liquid in the cells. I assume it is syrup since I am feeding so they will build comb.
Should I worry at this point that they are filling too much comb with syrup to the point the queen can't lay? Or just wait to see it they is capped brood?
How long before I should see capped brood? 1 week, 2,3 or 4?
I won't be going into the hive again for a week. I want to leave them alone as much a possible.
Here are some Pic. from today.
