    A follower board has been installed to limited them to 3 frames, and the entrance has been reduced to slightly larger than a bee space square. Crappy weather has kept them in this week.

    How did they look when you added the follower? Colony increased at all yet? Brood should be hatching well by now. Patience grasshopper...let 'em do their thing, and feed feed feed! Will be looking for updates in a month or so... Good luck!

    Some of the brood has begun to hatch, I can tell because the previously capped brood cells are now open, and have small larvae in them. They are going through about a pint of 1:1 a day. Any suggestions for feeding Mega-Bee dry? I've made up some small patties (about 2oz each) but they don't seem interested in it.

    you can probably put the dry powder right on top of the top bars. I know some people do that.
