Hello bee keepers,
I’ve now done my first brood inspection after I transferred my bees from their 5 frame nuc to their 8 frame hive two weeks ago.
The 5 original frames are ‘buzzing’ with activity and look good. There was lots capped honey, open comb and some brood. I couldn’t find the queen…
My questions relate to the new frames. The end one was completely untouched. the one next to it had a small amount of new comb and the 8th on the other side of the hive was well covered and very active although not complete.
I’ve added some photos to show you the progress. Based on all the advice you’ve all given me, I’ve now added a feeder and I’ll check again in two weeks to see how much more advanced those new frames are - with the addition of a feeder.
I’d love any thoughts on the images as to whether you think this is a ‘normal’ amount of growth after two weeks, or whether it is slow, fast etc just so I can get a gauge of whether the hive is tracking well.
Thanks in advance,
