New Nuc Production Question?

How soon will newly installed nuc begin drawing comb? I installed two nucs two days ago, I Know I know patience is a virtue, and today I checked to see if they were feeding ok, I took a peak under the hood and there was zero new comb. I didn't pull brood frames, I just pulled the first two on either side to see if there was new comb. NONE.

I am prepared to wait till next weekend to go into the hive again. :shhhh:

The bees need to get settled and bringing in nectar and pollen to start working frames unless the nuc is overflowing with bees.

Re: New Nuc Production question?

Thanks, I will wait now till next weekend. I am running foundationless and will have to risk them not drawing correctly. Not much risk since they have the foundation frames from the Nuc.

They are already brining in nectar and pollen, maybe just not enough yet.
