    2 of Our club members got packages 10 days ago and installed them the same way right next to each other. One hive is totally dead after 10 days and the other is doing fine...

    Would one expect the supplier to do something about this? Just curious...

    Sound like some sort of contamination at the hive end.

    No, I would not expect the supplier to do anything after 10 days. Send some of the bees to Beltsville for testing.
