Monica and Todd of The Carolina Bee Company drove for nearly 24 hours yesterday to bring packaged of bees from Georgia to North Carolina. One of those boxes was for me.
AND it’s raining today, which isn’t prime bee-handling weather. But, you have to do what you can when you can.
So, I used Monica’s no-shake package installation method, waited for a break in the action and went for it. The queen’s carriage is dangling between 2 bars that are simply pinching the little strap in place and the box is in the back where bars 11-23 will go when I take it out tomorrow. The quart sized sugar syrup bottle is between the box and the queen. The queen is between the bottle and the entrance.
They are so busy that I can’t put the flap down to take a picture, but I think they like it here.
