Hello to all first year bee keeper here.

I installed 2 packages on 4-19, and also caught a swarm that day about 10 miles away. All 3 installed on new foundation. The swarm seemed to be about the same size as the packages. I have been feeding sugar syrup and pollen patties.

Did an inspection this past Sat, found the queens in both package hives, and plenty of eggs, various stages of larva and capped brood. plenty of pollen stored and some capped honey and still drawing comb.

Also inspected the swarm hive, plenty of stored pollen a little honey, drawing comb, but just a couple of eggs no larva, no capped brood. I could not find the queen.

Should i be concerned about the swarm hive? Check again this weekend?
