Rosemary is the hive I was more worried about. A lot of the workers never went into the hive when I shook out the packages, preferring to cluster back up in the package box. So this group started off with a smaller workforce, and I was afraid they would not accept their queen. It has been three days since we put the packages in, so I wanted to get the queen cage out of there if I could.
So Rosemary is recovering from package trauma, a bit slow to get moved in and start hanging curtains but at least they seem to know that this is “home.” I’ll check back in with them next week!
