Meet the girls! :)
« on: April 18, 2010, 02:27:12 PM »
Well, it didn't go as smoothly as planned...the can got stuck, then I got stuck.  I had to go back and put the box in the hive after they calmed down a bit.  I hope they like their new home.(and that they stay)  

Oops, ETA:
I'm a newbeek. :)

Thank you.  Well, there are some around the "door" and the queen is still in the queen box...with a couple of holes poked in the sugar to make the escape easier.  Hopefully they will decide to stick around as she can't run off.  :)

Love your screen name :) Hopefully the nucs don't mess with the chooks!

No, they came from Georgia and arrive today. 
I saw your posting on the "How did you choose your member name?" thread and saw you are in Caroline. I am on the Talbot/Caroline border between Matthewstown and Dover Roads. I assume that since you got Georgia bees on the 18th that you got them from Mike Embrey. I picked up six packages from him that day.

Hey there, 2ndcharter...  Wow, six packages!  Do you have them all at one place?  Yep, I got them from Mike.

Yes, all one apiary. Started last year with a package and a nuc. This year, gangbusters. I'm on the Choptank and have to take advantage of the acres of marsh mallows.
