Having just installed 4 packages I find it interesting which bees are doing what. The 2 NWC are concentrating on foraging and pretty much ignoring the syrup. The MH are about 50:50 taking the syrup but still foraging, though not as heavily as the NWC. The Italians are lazy; they are sucking down the syrup as if there were no tomorrow and very little forage activity.
If weather permits, tomorrow I'll remove the queen cages and check on syrup levels and comb build out as well as see if the queens have started laying in the comb being drawn out. Weather I decide to refill the feeders will depend on syrup level usage and comb build out. I have a feeling that with the NWC, I maybe removing the syrup and just letting the forage.
