Installing your new packaged bees

Posted on February 22, 2014 at 5:46 PM Comments comments (0)
How do you plan on installing your packaged bees? Seems everyone says to "shake" them out of there transport cage. NOT! I take out 4 frames from hive, remove syrup can from cage and just place the package where the 4 frames go, remove queen cage and use an elastic band to hold her cage to the foundation next to the package . A few days later remove the queen cage and package and replace the 4 frames. Any residual bees in the cage walk out. Just place the package in front of the hive. NO SHAKING THE BEES PLEASE!
