Hived my package last friday. The queen was out by sunday afternoon. I started them on frames with only wax starter strips.

I looked in today, and the queen is laying like a dang fool!!!!!

The gilrs are working hard and drawing as fast as they can, but i noticed eggs in just about every cell that wasnt being used for honey or pollen.

Will the queen lay SO fast as to run out of room. Should i add a frame or 2 with foundation (wax) to help the workers keep ahead?

Thanks in advance.

If you don't have any drawn foundation to give them, as much as I hate using foundation in my hives (now that I know it's full of pesticides and other dangerous chemicals), I think I would put in some foundation. Every other frame with starter strips in between. It'll help them draw straighter too.
