The first delivery came with a little shakey start of weather in the Rockies and snow on the road. The driver waited a little longer and his ride ended up smooth with no problems. It was cool all the way to Minnesota. The bees looked in great shape. Due to the cool weather the feeder cans were still heavy with feed. When it is hot in route, the bees will consume more feed.
Thanks to all my helpers that made these two days possible. The wait time for bees was usually no more than three to five minutes. Also, thanks to all the beekeepers that followed the pick up schedule. That really made the bee pick up stay at a fast clip with minimum wait times.
