And now on to the bees...

So last week we installed our bees into their new hive. I got to take pics while my sister and Dad worked the bees.

The babies were not happy by the time we got done.

Yesterday we went out to make sure the bees got the Queen released from her cage and accepted her. I got to work them this time. It was fun. Just relax, move slowly and use lots of smoke ;) - Things look good so far, they seem to be active and there were some new larvae from what we could tell. We'll go out next week and check them again to make sure things are good.
