So, having hived my new bees on Saturday and added the 6 frames they arrived on to the hive of frames with foundation I thought I would have a quick look-see tonight at the hive to make sure all was okay.

They are very active and bringing a lot of pollen back to the hive. However underneath there seems to be a lot of debis. Is this quantity normal in 4 days ?

9 Medium Poly, mostly foundation-less. Some run as Warre TBH
Yes.

Flakes of wax drop through as there building comb, bits of pollen and the odd varroa mite.
