Settling in

It's been about a week, and we went back to check on our bees. They seem to be settling in, although we didn't poke around in the deep to check. We want the workers to feel at home before we start really disturbing them. They were really active near the entrance to the hive, though. There is a pile of cruddy wax/debris they are busy clearing out from the frames they want to use. Bee housekeeping.

I saw a few bees with fat, yellow hindlegs- that means they're gathering pollen! A good sign I think, that they intend to sign the lease at least until winter.
