Just figured I'd post in here since I've read almost everything here (well.....maybe).
I started my two hives with packages last week. One is doing well; the other no so much. Of course this is based off of my vast beekeeping experience of about a week.
I plan on checking on them on Friday, but I suspect the Queen is gone in one of them. Anyways, here's a pic, for the record.
I know this post is a bit random (welcome to my brain), so I apologize.
