I put a package colony and queen in a new hive on Saturday. Am feeding with sugar syrup (simple). When what will I be looking for when I open my hive for the first time? How do I know that things are going along as expected.
My hive is on some farm property west of Houston, Texas. Our farmhand is supplying the refills on syrup. Hive is in part shade and we do have a large water source near by. At this point I am using only one box - as per the advise of B. Weaver apiaries.
If anyone will offer me guidance, I would certainly appreciate it. ALL of my books say things that are totally different from each other.
