Due to most bee suppliers being sold out of packages, I am getting a late start on my first hive here in KS. My bee's are set to arrive on May 11th. I have a couple of questions:
- How long should I feed syrup with this late installment, and should I even bother with the entrance reducer?
- Should I even bother installing an entrance reducer?
- Has anyone had any problems with Italians that were ordered from Walter Kelley?
Thanks in advance for any answers provided. I'm so excited and I've put in lots of research time so I hope to not make too many mistakes. This is a pricey hobby!
