Just picked my first hive this evening. One full deep packed with bees. Drove it home. Took about 2 hrs. (Traffic) opened the entrance and they started bearding on the front of the hive. I had the ac on the whole way. Wondering if they were hot. A few bees were fanning but not many. It was dark out except for the headlights. Hoping they just wanted to stretch their legs.
Anyhow, I really appreciate all the advice given in these forums. Thanks much, and wish me luck.
