Things went very well while installing the packages. I got my first sting on the ankle because I didn't get my pants leg tight enough, but that was my fault, not theirs.
My wife even came out and took photos of the whole thing. I was so surprised that she even helped move some of the boxes and all she had on was a sleeveless shirt. She continues to surprise me every day with the things she does for and with me. (Ain't love GRAND?)
As I lay trying to settle down last night, I realized that I may have made one minor mistake. I put the jar of syrup on small pieces of wood OVER the inner cover and then two empty boxes and the outer cover over the jar. I bet I was supposed to put the jar directly on the frames or maybe on a couple of pieces of wood directly on the frames instead of over the opening in the inner cover. I don't think this is a major problem, so I'm not going to go out today and break everything open and correct it unless somebody more edumacated than I thinks I need to.
One other comment that I have not seen mentioned is that I used gallon glass jars for the syurp and drilled 6 or 7 small (smaller than a pencil lead) holes in the lid. Since I didn't have enough sugar to make the correct mixture, the jars still had about an inch and a half of space to be full. When I turned the jars over, quite a bit of syrup ran out until a vacuume could be formed in the jar. That made quite a mess on the inner cover (again, a mistake?) but I'm sure the ladies will clean it up. I think the jar needs to be FULL so you can turn it over without making a mess. I probably should have just added enough water to do that. It wouldn't have diluted the mixture that much.
By the way....is the inner cover supposed to go on with the large-spaced side to the top or to the bees?
Sorry I'm so long-winded. Just my nature.
