Adventures in Beekeeping: Successful hive installation

Posted by on May 10, 2014 at 9:19 pm.

My last two orders of package honeybees arrived this morning and everything went smoothly. No time to post the few pictures that my daughter took but perhaps I’ll get a chance within the next few days.

Throughout the day, I popped by to check on them and I must say that they seem to be settling into their home quite nicely. This afternoon, we had rain showers for a few hours which made most of the honeybees go inside their new home. There were a few stragglers that refused to go inside though. It wasn’t a hard rain. After the rain had stopped, I noticed some of the honeybees doing widening circles as they oriented themselves to their new location and later some ventured out to find nectar sources. 🙂
