I did 2 packages. 1 - 3lbs and 1 - 4lbs.

So the questions:
My queens didn't have any candy in the cadge behind the cork. I removed the cork and put in a marshmallow. So I was reading Backyard beekeeping and he said to leave the cork in for 2 days before removing. My bees sat for one day before installing. I figured the mallo will take a day or 2. I have no idea how long the bees were in transit either.

So Is a marshmallow alright?
How long will it take for them to get through it?
Should I go put the cork back in?

Thank you,
