I went down to Cranbury NJ and picked up three packages of bees. The weather yesterday was perfect, warm a little windy and very clear. I hived the bees and so far day one they are doing well. the picture below is after I put them in the boxes gingerly. They were reasonably docile, only a few stings and I’ll remove the boxes from the front of the hives later today. So I was able to get some new colonies before the big apple blossoms come and maybe not too late for the peaches. Next thing to do three days from now is to be sure the queens are free and laying and then no more reports for a while. Oh and electric fence is up so hopefully the bears will get the message as so far I have had no comments on this blog from them.
