Hi guys, newby here. We’re about 3 weeks in with my first hive. Our hive is located in the lower blue mountains, west of Sydney. We’re getting loads of info from the local bee club, as well as the nuc. We installed a nuc with four 4 frames of bees, with another 4 empty frames into the brood box. Since we started, the bees have moved into two new frames, with two untouched. The beetle trap is earning its money, with lots of small dead back beetles on the bottom tray.We haven’t installed any food at this stage.
So I guess I’m after some reassurance or guidance from the more experienced that things look OK. From what I gather, we’ll install the super once all the frames are covered in bees, so maybe 3-4 weeks away? This would mean mid March, so with Autumn looming, what would this mean in terms of harvesting?
