One of the first things I ask a mentee when we are discussing hive inspections is whether or not they can see eggs. Many admit they cannot. So wait another week. Larvae and capped brood are real easy to see. Also, if you see a bluish white substance at the bottom of a cell, you do not need to see the larva to know it is there. Don't be so quick to inspect a newly installed package. All you want to know is if the queen has been released. After that give her a week or two before bothering her again. By that time you should see capped brood (9 days after first egg is laid) and you will know all is well.
