    Suggestions? No
    Question; When did the queen get released?
    It is not true that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
    They can learn them, they just can't do them.

    One was released immediately and the other took a couple of days.

    Any signs they are thinking about it? Pollen and new comb? If the queens have been banked for a long time they can be slow , but that is not likely in packages.

    Yes, time to call supplier.

    Yes on pollen and new comb. I did misspeak, it has been one week and one day since installation.

    Give them a couple of more days. Did you see any nectar in the top cells? No idea about TN flow schedule.

    In that case, give it another week. Don't panic!
