The day has come and with it, our new bees!
We’ve had this planned since last year and ordered our package of bees around Thanksgiving. After much anticipation, the day finally arrived to pick up the package of bees. We’re very excited to add bees to our homestead and take one more step toward complete self-sufficiency.
Installing the bees was a little nerve-racking. I’d never done anything like that before. After watching Doug from BeeKind’s youtube video on how to install bees, I felt confident I could do it myself. I’ve heard that you tend to drop the queen in the box of bees if you wear gloves, so I did it without gloves. As nervous as I was, the bees let me do my thing and didn’t once sting me or act aggressive.
