    Default Re: Do I definitely, absolutely, 100% for SURE have a queen bees?

    I have seen package queens take two weeks to start laying, so it's not worth panicking until then. A frame of eggs is always good insurance when in doubt.

    I've been traveling and speaking... sorry I'm just getting caught back up on the forum.

    Hi, Mike, GLAD that you're back... missed ya. My wife and I just now came in from moving the three top-bar feeders back on the top to the 15th bar near the end of the brood chamber.
    After we moved each feeder back about seven bars, we looked for capped brood, and, lo and behold, all three hives have lots of brood, i.e., too, a QUEEN.
    Before you take off again, ask permission, and we'll all vote on it.
