Well....I finally got the guts to take a look in my new hive!

It is a double deep (10), and I smoked them a bit and popped to top cover. Tey started buzzing like crazy...but were very unconcerned with me......nice girls!

The outer 2 or 3 foundations on each side appear not to be started...the middle ones have good cone drawn out!

So...I don't think I will need to place the free deep given to me with the hive...ya think?

I been feeding at the entrance for the last couple of weeks...and they appear to be slowing down on taking it in...you think they are finally acclimated to the new area (250 miles north of where they were in FL). They are real busy bees!
