How should I set that up? I have a new package coming and I have 10 frames half-filled with honey that I want to give them instead of syrup. (EASIER!)
I have 6 built up comb frames for the brood box (I use all mediums) and 4 frames they would need to build up, either foundationless with a strip on the top of old comb, or build onto wax foundation frames.
I was thinking of installing the bees into the brood box, setting the queen cage in there, then putting the honey super on top for them. But then I have to go in in a couple days and check the queen and take her cage out, so I'd have to remove that honey super, and then put it back on, which is fine, but I don't know if that's too disruptive on day #3.
My other thought is to also stick a frame of brood in there to give them a quick start. This package is a little late arriving. Is giving a new package a frame of brood ever recommended?
