Last week I installed 2 - 3# packages each into 1 - 8 frame medium box with foundation. I performed my first inspection today removing the queen cage. The queen had bee released and I was able to see her in both hives (she has a red dot).
Bees quite docile, lots of pollen coming in, they are taking syrup.
I was wondering with the information below and that I'm using 8 frame mediums, should I add the next box now or wait a few days ..or week?
Bees on 6 frames
E 3/8 F F F F 3/8 E (3/8 = being mostly full on the inner side, some drawn on the outer side)
Bees on 5.5 frames
1/8 3/4 F F F F 2/3 E
E = empty
F = full
^ = location of queen
