I just started this year with a package and a nuc. Both have screen bottoms. Both are doing well. I see more white wax pieces under the colony started with the package. I see very few under the colony started with the nuc. I have no idea what these are. Is this normal? Can anyone offer a suggestion? Thanks.

If it is definately wax and not something else they could be getting robbed. It could also be from them running out of open honey and are uncapping the rest for use.

It's nothing to worry about. The package bees have to make a ton of wax in building out frames and drop some scales. Nucs are usually already on drawn frames.
