I wanted to add bees to the farm this year so I ordered a beehive this winter and used it as the model to make two additional hives. When you start beekeeping you typically order a 3 lb package or a nuc. I placed an order for 3 packages for delivery in late March but the supplier had problems meeting his demand so I ended up having to look elsewhere. Luckily I found a source locally and was able to pick up my packages yesterday. I installed the packages late yesterday evening and everything seemed to go well. I will check on the bees this afternoon and will check again this weekend to make sure the queen is out of her cage. It was hard to photography while in a beesuit and while busy installing the packages, but I will be posting more soon with new photos, more info on bees and beekeeping, etc.
