3# package in a top bar
On May 1st I will take delivery of a 3# package and queen (I live in NJ). I've built a top bar for them and want to do a direct install of the queen. Couple of things I'd like your thoughts on; 1) Dump in the queen first or the bees? I'm leaning on the bees first. 2) Feed or not? I'm leaning on not, as I feel that at this time of the year that this is really just a swarm situtation and if they had swarmed on their own, than they would have nothing to start with and would likely be fine. Your thought's would be appreciated.
