Got the bee's a little later than I had wanted. But it was my fault - procrastinating of course. Anyway at one month they seem to be progressing. 4 frames pretty much filled and working on a fifth - sounds like a typical weekend ;-) Anyway am seeing brood and good activity. I am in SW Ohio so I am hoping that they are ramping up and will really build when the soybeans bloom in the next month. Worried that with the late start that the hive will build up enough reserves by fall. Oh I am giving them extra sugar water to help them build comb.
Here are some pics of todays inspection. Did not spot the queen, but I am still a novice at this.
