Once your bees are settled into their new hive, they go to work in earnest on building comb. Not all bee comb is going to produce honey, in fact when a colony starts to make comb it is primarily brood comb. Brood comb is where the queen bee lives and lays her eggs, which propagate the hive and help a newly installed package reach its full numbers.
