Question on new packages

567 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Andrew Dewey
Installed two packages a week ago today. Gave them two drawn frames to start. Gave them a quick look today and both hives have filled all the drawn comb with sugar water and pollen. No eggs or larva. Is this normal or do I have a problem. Both hives looked exactly the same. Thanks

It will take several days for the queen to be released from the queen cage and she may very well not start laying immediately. In other words, no need to panic yet! Look for additional frames to be drawn and cells prepared for the queen to lay in.
