Installed bees in my first TBH on Monday. No stings. I suspended the queen cage instead of direct release. Wednesday decided to check that queen had been released. The workers had eaten out the candy plug but the queen was not able to exit because one of her attendants had died. I removed the dead bee and let the queen walk out and into the hive. Bees seem to have a good stings. I only smoked the hive a little before opening.

They had been very busy in just a few days, started drawing out comb already.

Very excited to see the progress of my first beehive this year.
