First time installing bees. Had 2 packages 1 of the packages had a small amount of comb built and the bees were very tight to the queen cage. I installed cage with marshmallow in opening. It was about 38 degrees at install today 2 inches of snow has everyone sealed in hive. Any concerns with the comb in package and the clustering of the bees on the queen. Other package they were around cage but not as aggressively as this one. Thanks

Welcome and congrats on the install.
By the time they get to Maine quite common to have some comb drawn. Never noticed any difference in results from comb or no comb though.
