Hey I've got a problem I have a new colony from a package this year that hasn't done squat. I have a two year old hive and a swarm hive from this year that is just as big as the old hive. This package has a screened bottom board; different from my other two. Here are some photos. The comb looks crumbly and non uniform. There is white powder (probably wax) all over the ground. The hive entrance has small, gooey, little bee larvae and the comb has sunken cappings.
