Honeybees arrive and in they go!
Happy bee keeper! I am trying
bee's this year. I have not had good luck with
By the way-we have Local honey for sale
This is how they arrive- in a crate with the queen in her own small crate inside-so they can adapt to her pheromone, and feed her.
Literally 'shaking' the bees into the hive
Watching all the bees load into the hive (see the box tilted)
Checking to see if the Queen went down into the box-Success!!! She did!
The blanket is to keep her from flying up and away -if we lose the queen-the whole colony will leave.
