I am just getting started. I am starting out with two hives. They are both from packaged bees with mated queens. They have both only been in the hives for about two weeks and I am starting everything from new. Yesterday I was in both of the hives and noticed some cells with nectar and pollen in them but i did not notice any eggs. I also located the queen in both hives. At what point should I expect to see eggs? I was also told to feed them sugar water which I am doing but they are going through a crazy amount. I am feeding out of a bucket with a bunch of sticks that they can climb in and out on (a recommendation from a friend with bees) and seems to work well. Between the two hives they are going through about a gallon of sugar water a day. Is this a normal amount for them to be going through? Im not sure like I said I am new but seems like a awful lots for the amount of bees. Thanks in advance for your information.
