This is my first year and I just installed a nuc and I have a few question. My first question is that when I installed the nuc there was a hole bunch of bee still in the nuc box and I noticed that the queen was not in the hive it was flying around the hive and it was on the landing board but did not look like it wanted to go in. what should I do to make sure that she went in and that all is ok.

My second question is that the was is wider then the frames will that be a problem and how should I fix it, if this is a problem.

Also the frames are not in great condition if I wanted to replace then when would be a good time and how should I do it without disturbing the hive and loosing a lot of bees
