A local beekeeper installed 2 nucs in 2 hives about 10 days ago, and I moved the hives to my property 3 days ago. Should I let the bees "settle in" before checking them? Other than brood production what should I be looking for? What favorite beginning beekeeping book can anyone recommened? Thanks!

I bought "Beekeeping for Dummies" and found it to be a great book for beginners. Lots of pictures and also lots of tidbits to help you along the way. Another excellent book is "The Queen and I" it reads like a novel but it is full of good info.
