I installed two packages into two brand new hives exactly a month ago. Things seem to be going very slowly for me when it comes to them building comb but maybe it's all normal... I did an inspection after one week to make sure the queens were released and to remove the cages: All OK I did an inspection a week after that to check for eggs: They had drawn out almost 5 whole frames in two weeks, I found eggs, and larvae they had finished 90% of their pollen patty I had given them. I decided not to give them more patties as they were storing plenty of pollen. Since I found eggs in both hives, and everything looked great I decided not to inspect them for 2 weeks, that should be plenty of time for them to build out a few more frames and get their second deeps. I did an inspection this weekend, and I found a great deal of brood cells in both hives, lots of eggs, larvae, even some emerging right at that moment. And apart from building some comb up to the top feeder they only built out 1 more frame, so basically each hive has about 5.5 frames of built comb out of 10. I still felt it was too early to put the second deep on. Both hives seem very healthy, stores look good, lots of brood, but they're not building comb as fast as I thought they would. They are going through about a gallon of syrup a week each. I'm using wax coated black plastic foundation. Am I just very impatient? Is one month not enough time for a package to build up 70-80% of a deep?
