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.

Italian bees on a Carniolan Queen cage
In about two weeks the packages will be shaken. One thing to remember is the bees in the package may not bee the same race as the queen that was ordered. In about 30 days after install, the change over to the queens race should be almost complete. Why does this happen? Carniolan bees do not move up very well to be shaken. Most of the bees in the packages are Italians.
I have kept bees for 28 years and run 25 colonies. We have changed our business name to Bees and Honey LLC. We are still selling honey at our Stillwater location.
Honey fills (still in Stillwater) anytime but please call
