I'm expanding my hives with three new packages of bees in a few days. I have 5 existing hives that appear to have wintered well. My question is: when I start those new packages should I put some existing comb in there to give them a jump start or let them start on bare foundation? I would think that putting one or two frames with drawn comb would let the queen get to laying right away but will this keep the bees from drawing out the rest of the foundation? Packages bees can draw out foundation fast. suggestions please. Thanks.
