I just received my first bees on Tuesday and installed them in their box same day. I put 4, 1 quart 1:1 mixture of sugar water in the hive with them (so a total of 1 gallon). Couple of questions for the community:
- When should I go back to check on the queen to make sure she got out her box? The manual with the bees says 1 week, but most videos I see on YT say 3 to 4 days.
- Should I refill the jars with more sugar water when I open the box next to give them another 1 gallon of sugar water or should I take them off the sugar water after this first 1 gallon?
- If I should give them more, how much more and for how long?
