I am done with the Spring installation. All the local Beekeepers met at the Mall at 1AM. Adam came with his truck. I bought two queens and five packages.
Yesterday I split my two hives. I could not find the queens, so I am guessing that she is with the brood that I found, so this morning I put the queens in the two boxes that I assume are the queenless hives. I hope I was right.
The 5 packages went smoothly and took about an hour this morning. I was not stung, although some riders manages to follow me into the house when I was done. I hope the bees are happy.
I have some pictures of the bee truck and maybe tonight I’ll post them.
