Package is little over a week old. Best time to check sunny warm, no wind ideal. Ok, so I'm going in. What I'm concerned about is it's about 60, sunny, look at all this activity in front of the hive. Bees coming and going (lots). Not aggressive, but definitely lots of bees coming and going.
So smoke and go slowly, pull off the outer cover, check and remove the top feeder...then check below for the first time.
So the question....I can most likely calm the bees inside. But what about the hundreds of foragers coming and going?
Thanks. Hope you liked the picture.
