Here we are getting ready to install some packages. One of these three will be installed into the box behind.
It’s finally here! Many of our customers have requested a video demonstration of how to install a honeybee package by shaking. Enjoy!
Also. . .
Install the packages as soon as possible after you receive them. It is best to do this in late afternoon or EARLY morning. Wait if it is raining or snowing.
Do not use smoke when installing the package. The smoke can confuse bee pheromones and cause drift.
If you need to store packages, keep them in a cool, dark, quiet place. Ideally, the temperature should be between 50 and 70 degrees F. Spray light sugar syrup on the screen cage about every 4 hours. Don’t drown the bees.
