Another newbie question. Just opened and checked my 2 hives. Made a split on June 19. All I saw in the new split hive was honey and pollen. The girls were not happy with me so I did not pull each frame and check. I saw no queen cells either. IF I have honey and pollen and saw where comb is being drawn, would that indicate I have a queen? I did not even attemp to look for the queen as these olds eyes are to slow. I appreciate those of you who guide us beginners along the way. Sure got a lot of honey for there winter. Thanks Wes

you should see eggs in 30 days. About now.
And in my limited experience it takes a few more days for her to really get up and running. Every so often she will lay more than one egg in a cell until she gets the hang of it.

or shrimp.
So as not to confuse you with different terminology than everyone else uses; I am sure he is talking about larva. They resemble grubs more than shrimp and are very hard to see when they first hatch.
