It was a great spring day and perfect for installing new bees. Becky picked up her new Minnesota Hygienics yesterday and after they spent the night in the sunroom, she installed them today.
The camera battery gave out on me before I finished filming the entire process, but the portion the video shows is the processing of the new Queen. Here are a few more pictures showing the new bees and a close-up of the package that contains about 10,000 bees and the small queen-cage. The hive shot shows this hive was installed in the original hive, using one deep frame.
