I installed a 5 Frame Nuc into my 8 Frame deep on Monday,
I ordered the Flow Hive 2 full setup, and waiting on my May arrival.
I installed the 5 frames, with 2 new frames and the 8th spot is currently a frame feeder, (I am waiting on delivery of top feeder)
The guy I bought the Nuc from gave me some old bee protein comb patties I have been using, as well as sugar water
Today is Wedneday, the sugar water was gone already and it seemed way too many bees drowned in there, I did have sticks to try to help, hopefully top feeder comes soon.
also saw some hive beetles on bottom board.
I have attached pictures of the 2 new frames to show the progress that they’ve done in first 2 days.
Should I be concerned about the hive beetles yet? Any other suggestions?
