This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Pallet of 150 - 2 lb packages

Bee pick up day went very well yesterday. I think we were able to move everyone through quickly. My helpers as usual were awesome, they had to check the queens on 1500 packages and did a great job. We hope your package installation also went well. Remember to check for queen acceptance in about 7 days. If you see eggs and or young larvae you have a laying queen, you don't have to see the queen.
