Had a bit of crazy comb that glued two frames together, I cleaned it up and made sure the frames were even tighter- they seem to like to push them apart. Saw some nice capped brood in a really nice laying pattern from the queen. Quite happy with how they're doing, they've got 3 frames drawn out one with mostly sugar syrup/nectar and the rest is mostly eggs, larvae so a nice population increase in the time coming.

Bonus, I found the queen- need to get her marked one of these days

Is this progress alright and in the timeframe? I've installed the package on the 29th of may

It was about 3 weeks ago when a swarm adopted me. My first bees. Last weekend, I opened the hive for an inspection and was thrilled to find the queen. The next time that I am in there, I'll likely mark her but am pretty certain that I can find her again.
It's amazing how fast they grow their hive.

Upon research, it says it's an indicator of tracheal mites? Its just the one i've seen perhaps im looking too deep into this. Ill check for the weird wings next inspection and post more pictures if I see more.
