This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Queen Acceptance

  10 days from hiving a package would be appropriate time to check for eggs.
First delivery beekeepers need to check their hives for larvae and laying pattern.
Second delivery beekeepers should check their hives on or around this coming Tuesday the 14th.  If the queen is not accepted the bees will dwindle. A new queen will have to be introduced to keep the hive going.
