I have hived a new package of bees on 9 April..so we're just entering our 5th week. the entrance reducer has had the smallest opening used since the beginning, but I'm wondering if it's okay to adjust it to the next opening...I ask because their progress has been somewhat slow, I think that the weather up here in Eastern Mass/Cape Cod has something to do with it, really cold and rainy. I have frames 4,5,6 that are nicely drawn and full of capped brood, babies started to show up last Friday (5 May) but other than that only frames 3,7 have some comb drawn in the inside top corners, and pollen and nectar in them...but no eggs yet. I'm thinking they might not be strong enough yet to handle that second sized opening on the entrance reducer..so I look to you all for advice? Thanks!
