My hive (6 weeks old) seems to be doing fine. Tons of new bees, brood and eggs galore.
I have 2 questions:
1) If I technically bought an Italian queen, the brood may not be since the drones a queen mates with could be from any other hive or kind of bee. Would that be correct ?
2) I have a medium super with a queen excluder and my bees aren't adding any comb or honey there at all. I see them walking on it, but that's about it.
Your thoughts ?
