My Bees are here...Oh S**t!!!!!!!!!!
« on: April 08, 2005, 11:30:03 AM »
:shock: Got a call this morning that my bees are here and I need to get them in the morning. Wasn't expecting them for at least 2 more weeks. Not quite ready so I have to scramble to get my stuff together so I can install them tomorrow evening or Sunday morning.

Should be a fun summer. Now I will have 2 hives to play with.

Good luck to everyone this season.

GREAT to SEE YOU BACK :)

I hope you make out okay, I'm sure you will - it sounds like a lot of people are going to be early or late - nothing worse though than a ahipping cage full of bees and see them drop to the bottom a few hundred a day.

I had one package DIE on me before I got to install them, but it was only 2 days after getting them and I had a second package at the same time and THEY did fine. I don't know what happened, but I surely should have thought about MAIL DAMAGE, but I think both shipping cages would have either lived or died, not one of each.

I need to look up another post of someone I was going to write concerning their bees being KEPT at the post-office too long. It is so important to look them over IMMEDIATELY or you will EAT the cost of the bees.

Best wishes and come around more often :) Let us know how everything works out.

A curious coincidence, Lechwe...  Where exactly did you have to go to get your packages?
