I am new to beekeeping and the bees have been in the hive for one week today. The queen was released day three. Is it too soon to do an inspection and see how things are going? I have read different advice on this saying now is the time to check out the hive and others saying that it is too soon and if I disturb the hive the bees will reject the queen and the first inspection should be week two or three.
I did go to see another local beekeeper but he was not helpful because he was down on top bar hives and had a very negative opinion of what I was doing. I remain positive but it would be helpful if I could get a glimpse of what the bees were doing.
