I have wanted to raise honey bees for a while now. This weekend we finally got our first hive and bees. We are off on a new adventure here!
3lbs of bees !!! 4500 per pound, is it possible there are 13,500 bees here?
First to pick the perfect spot.
Wouldn't you want to visit this flower?
The hive came in pieces and I had to assemble just about every piece of it!
These are the foundations where the bees will start building their combs ( not sure if I am using the correct terminology here)
The hive is all set up and ready for the bees.
Time to add the bees.
I will head out later today to check and make sure they have settled into their new home.
