2011 Season really underway now - written in April, forgot to post!

posted in Our Hives |

Yesterday I picked up 2 packages of bees (3 pounds of bees and a marked queen per package) and installed them in the two hives that starved over the winter.  We had guests to observe the installation, and their toddler was utterly fascinated.  When a package is installed, the bees pour like honey, and if you haven’t seen that before it is quite a sight.

Today I gave the 2 new hives a full feeder of syrup, and put a super on the hive that made it through the cold - she was already honey-bound.  We had to give her something to keep her busy!

Stumble it!
