I'm going to be building a top-bar hive for next spring and start my first colony. I will be installing a 3 pound package of Italian bees, most likely. From your experiences, what can I expect from these bees?

They may die. They may abscond. They may flourish enough to make it through the winter. They may prosper so much that they swarm three times and still give you a honey crop. Something in the middle of all of that is most likely.
