Learning the Art of Keeping Bees -- Video Two
This is the second step to install a bee package in your new hive. There are two videos in this post, each will show half of the process.
In this video, I drop the bees into their new home. There are approximately 4,000 bees in this package--and it always is a bit exciting to get them into their new home.
Before this step, I already installed the queen cage. Right before I start the drop, you can see her little cage inside the hive box.
Here is my beekeeping book on Amazon: The Beekeeper's Guide: Fun and Simple Steps to Apiary Success and Self Sufficiency
