    Default Do drones come in a 3# package

    I just got a 3# package and installed them on Wednesday and today I noticed several drones in and around the hive. Do some drones come in the package, got them from Georgia. Do the Queens come already bred in a package? They are bringing in pollen that I can see and I am wondering, where will they put it seeing as how they have only been in the hive since Wednesday late in the evening. Thanks for any insight.

    Sorry I didnt read your whole post, but you do have drones, the queen should be bred, they are putting that pollen in the new comb they are building. Are you feeding them?

    I have always got some drones in the packages and nucs I have purchased. Hopefully the queens were mated before they were put in the cage that she came in. That is not why the drones are there, they just got in the way.
