Got my nuc yesterday and moved them over into their new home.
A bit nervous as I didn’t see the queen. I also was a frame short (thought I get a 5 frame nuc but it was only 4) so I went back in to today to add the other frame and to have another go at finding the queen - still no luck.
How long should I wait until I go back in to see if there is any activity that would point me to the queen being alive and doing her job?
When I went to check on them this afternoon I found lots of them buzzing in front of the hive but not going in or landing, just hanging out there or crawling over the front of the box.
