A little back story…I installed my bee package on 4/13 and they swarmed on 5/3. I got a few of them back and put them back in the hive. I’ve been feeding them sugar syrup and watching them intently as they fly in and out of the hive. I did my first inspection today to look at each frame and their progress.
How do they look? It looks like they have been making great progress, but what do I know. I think I see a queen cell on the second frame. Is it common for a new package to swarm? Should i have removed the queen cell? I see some larva so I think things are going well. Any tips are greatly appreciated.
