And installed in a TBH.   grin

I wonder how long it takes for the bees to all move down? Anyone use this method?

Thank you for the link.

I like this and think I will try it for my 2 packages. I would imagine that less shaking = less upset bee's. I should get my packages in a few weeks.

Currently Fermenting:

Cherry Melomel - 1Gal
Pear Melomel - 1Gal
White Pyment - 1Gal
Root Beer Mead - 1Gal
Mead Cyser - 5Gal

Recently Finished:
Sack Mead - 1Gal, Very Good!
Braggot - 1Gal, Very popular!
Mead Cyser - 1Gal, Wifes Fav!
JAO - 1Gal, Nice, A bit too sweet.

Bees that are shaken out of a package into a hive are not upset.  They are just confused.  In the case of hiving a package, confusion isn't all a bad thing either.

Aw c'mon now the shaking is half the fun, besides the bees don't care.

An a more serious note, do note attach the queen cage with the strap as shown. Either just turn her loose after dumping the bees in, or if you must hang the cage, hang it by a piece of floss or monofilament fishing line. This lets the cage spin freely and helps stop the bees using the queen cage as a starting point for all kinds of crazy comb.
