Do bees grow? it seems that my new bees are a little smaller than the pkg bees that were shipped. Looking at them today I definately have 2 differnt sizes they all have the same color config. What cell size foundation does bushy mtn sell in the super frame setup? that is what I bought. While I was watching them today I was counting about 100/120 flight departures a minute per hive with a equal number of arrivals, it was amazing to see the steady stream of bees.
Newly emerged bees are smaller. I think Brushy Mt. ships Pierco and it's a slightly smaller cell size, but not small enough to be natural sized or have much effect on the mites.
