    Default 1st inspection - no brood

    I just did my first inspection in my hives today. I found the queen in one, but could not find her in the second hive. But I also did not find anything that looked like eggs in either hive. They were package bees with mated queens and I put in foundation without drawn comb. A few frames in each hive had a fair amount of comb drawn out, and a lot of them had clear liquid, a few looked dark yellow - pollen? How soon should there be evidence of laying?

    usually start to see eggs within 1-2 weeks probably just need a few more days without knowing when they was hived or when the queen was released?
    eggs are pretty hard to see on new wax might have to look real close.
