I installed two packages one week and two days ago. I did not find any eggs,but was very pleased to see both queens wandering around. I was also very impressed to see the amount of comb built ( the weather hasn't even been that warm) Also happy to find no "wonky" comb built on any of the foundation-less frames. There very well may be eggs in some of the cells, I just couldn't see them and made the inspection as quick as possible thus not to disturb the colonies too much. The bees are bringing in pollen very very steadily and some capped "nectar" was in the corners of the center frames. I thought new beeks like myself would enjoy seeing the photos and perhaps some of you pros have some feedback for me that will aid me in my beekeeping journey. 10176081_10201954561408207_4788091602561429662_n.jpg 10173754_10201952740922696_3359418286120176422_n.jpg 10155833_10201954557368106_74327544091335108_n.jpg 10011515_10201952738082625_3248193558380879649_n.jpg 1507964_10201922268800912_4239537891078689075_n.jpg

Looks like you've had a successful installation! Nice work starting out foundationless.

I bet you've got eggs in there at this point. They can be tough to see sometimes.

Don't know if you noticed on the third pic there is your queen near the top. Her back end is down a cell, which means she probably just laid an egg or was working at it. Beautiful work they have done so far. Keep up the good work..
