How to install a package of bees
I know that installing a package of bees is daunting task.
Here is a video I would like to share that shows you how to install the package of bees in the Bee Bus.
The video is at the bottom of the page labelled "Bee-pros Installation"
Enjoy the bees
Let me if you have any questions.
Note: Do not release the queen from the cage.
The bees will do that. The bees will eat out the candy in about 3-4 days.
If you are installing the package using the easier method, retrieve the Bee Bus the next day.
Leave the hive for about 10 days. Do not open the hive and try to find the queen.
There is a higher acceptance of the queen after 10 days.
After 10 days, you can see if the queen is laying eggs.
Do not checker board the frames. Leave them as they are.
