Would like some advice from experienced beekeepers please.
I received a 3# package of bees 4 weeks ago. When I received them over half were dead but the queen was alive. I installed the live bees and they have been working away building comb. The apiary said they will send another package but I stated all I needed were more replacement bees...should finally get them this week.
Question, should I dump the new bees directly in comb side of the TBH, wait until evening and release package at the opening, dump in the partitioned end where the feeder is, etc???
