    Default Just installed my nuc when can I check them?

    I just installed my nut, last night, when would it be okay to go through the hive to check things out? Should I wait a few weeks? She is a great laying queen with a really nice brood pattern. They have lots of honey, pollen and brood already on the frames.

    Thanks,
    Joyce

    Wait at least a few days before you crack that nut.
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    sorry I meant nuc, smarty pants I was too excited to take my new motorcycle out to check for spelling areas. We finally had warm weather and I just got my bike last Friday, and I haven't had any time or good weather to take it out. Just checked the bees when we got home from easter dinner and they went through 355ml of sugar water today. They were very active,bringing in pollen,etc. They seem to be settling in nicely so far.

    As a general rule, let them rock and roll after installing a nuc. They are pretty well established. Just enjoy the show for a while.
    I myself have little time to check for spelling areas as well.
