    Default Hived my package yesterday.

    Hello all: I hived my first 3 lbs package yesterday. I have a screened bottom board and didn't put the apm board in. Some of the bees are clustered under the hive. Not sure if this is going to be a problem. My question, should I put the apm board in and make them find the entrance? Any suggestions? Thanks..

    Put the board in, once they learn the entrance you shouldn't have a problem with the sbb. Right now they think that's it.

    Thank-you for the information. I brushed off the bees and replaced the board. Seemed to work. Thanks.
