My husband and son drove for 5 hours today to pick up our honey bees. And my husband got them all situated! All I had to do was make them some sugar water and pack some snacks for the car ride. Easy day for momma!
We ordered a Beginner's Bee Kit from Brushy Mountain Farms which came with one super (the bee box). Jib found out that to make it through winter the bees are going to need more food than one box will hold. So while at Sacramento Beekeeping today he picked up a ready-to-assemble super and we'll get that built and painted and add it soon. We think we'll probably add another box so we can take honey without stealing the bees winter supply.
