I hived two new packages two weeks ago on permacomb. By my best estimation, the queens were released about 9 days ago. Is it safe to do a full inspection today? I'll listen to any recommendations and advice you folks have to offer.
Do you have the queen cages out? Go ahead and check them out and get the queen cages out if you havent yet.The queen cages will get all messed up in the comb if you do not remove them.A sunny 60 deg day would be great so you will not chill the brood.You should have plenty of eggs and larve may be some sealed brood.
