I just got my bees(2 packages) on Thursday!Its Monday afternoon right now and I just finished peeking at them! I got it all on camcorder too! My wife did that part. So far my bees in one hive are flying around a little and the other hive isnt doing much of anything, just a big glob of bees. I didnt see the queen, or any drawn comb or much of anything in either hive, but the glob of bees.We did go from about 80 degrees down to where it was snowing on Saturday!It snowed and was about 45 degrees! Shoot, I dont even know if the queens are still alive!. I'm using the Dadant ez frames but, as you probably already know, there's tons of different opinions on different types of foundations/frames to use so I'm at a point that I dont know if I've done anything right!..One thing I do know....My wife, my neighbor Paul and myself are having a great time walking around in the yard with our bee suits on!
I REALLy am having a blast with the bees though..I mean, I was even about to ball when I was going to the post office to pick them up!
Ok,...I hope your fun is as much as mine! I cant wait till I get stung like everyone else!
Eventually I will be able to write to people and do pictures here but theres a "probation period" sort of and I cant do that stuff yet.
