    Default Paxkage of bees released

    I released a package of bees on saturday at about 10am it was over cast and a little cool . I placed grass in the entrance while i placed them in the hive. I removed the grass about 7pm. I gave them sugur watter and a pollen pattie made from Bee-Pro. I checked on them today i drove and sit infront and watched them . They would craw out and then back in it's a bit windy so they are not flying. It lookes like the have diarrhea is this normal and can there be something wrong.

    you would be pooping a lot too if you had been locked in a room without a toilet for days. They are just releasing what they've been holding in for a while

    They've been confined. It should straighten out in a day or at most two.
