After nearly a week of waiting, on Sunday we were finally able to go back into our newly-occupied hive and see how it was doing. Apparently, everyone's healthy. We saw that they were doing a good job drawing new honeycomb out on the blank frames.
Plus, there was lots of brood... cells with eggs, larvae & pupae.
And there was a ton of capped honey for the bees t eat too! And some pollen-filled cells in an awesome bright orange. We saw a few bees coming home with legs covered in orange pollen too. It was amazing.
We gave them a bucket of sugar syrup to eat to help with their comb building, and left them to their work. While I worked on some other stuff, Eric planted our new honeysuckle for them.
So far... being a beekeeper rocks.
