OK, I'm right at 20 days into my first hive, so the newbies should be arriving. But that's not the question. Just thought I'd throw that in.
I open the hive and starting from the follower board, work my way to the entrance. could be my imagination, but as I move forward, the bees seem to be more active. How do I know if I'm up against guard bees, or just workers who are curious/annoyed?
Second, nothing is happening on bars 1,2 and 3. Can I expect them to begin building comb moving forward? - Mike
