hiving accomplished

All the bees are out of the package.  Some bees flying around in front  and around the hive.  most are gathered in a big ball in and around the first 3 bars (Queen is hanging off of bar 3).  Love the observation window of a top bar hive.  Was able to reach around and grab the empty box the bees had been shipped in with no problems; no protective gear what so ever, sun top, no stings.  gentle easy bees, as long as they don’t feel threatened.  Want them to get used to me, but will remain out of the hive for at least a week.

  1. My husband and I are considering getting some bees, but I didn’t realize how much prep work goes into establishing a hive. Good luck!
