« on: April 25, 2007, 06:54:38 PM »
the first time it was 35, this time it was Mid 50's.

 :roll: I'm crazy, First time with Really active bee's and I didn't use a veil.





I'm about to head back out and install the 2nd Package..

Nope haven't gotten stung yet! Don't plan on getting stung for a while either. I was having fun it was awesome.

I have to thank you Understudy, You directed me to the forums from the Terraforums a while ago, With out these boards I would be far to stressed out trying to get a hold of my mentor too often.

Thanks!

Good pics! I can't believe you are working the bees without a suit or veil. I would love to do that but can't get up the nerve. The last time I checked my hives I did take off ONE glove. That was nerve racking enough. Congrats on your new hives.

Great to see your new packages Cody!!
Just remember when that hive gets really booming you'll want to lose the dark colored shirt for a light colored one!The dark shirt might draw more attention from the bees than you would like.
Have a great time with your new hives!!
