Welcome to the forum and bee keeping.
Does your club have a mentoring program? If so, they should be able to readily answer any questions that might be of a local nature. I suggest you change your profile's location to Southwest Colorado so we do not give you answers that are out of your time zone i.e. Australia. Remember to feed 1;1 to the new instillation including pollen patties if you do not have pollen coming in yet. Good Luck -Mike
