Arcadia Center Installation of Hives

We got out to Woodlawn Plantation today in Alexandria, Virginia to install the five hives we acquired on behalf of our non-profit friends at Arcadia.  We used inexpensive ratcheted tie-downs for the tops and to keep the hives as one unit.  When we install the bees, we will put them in the lower box only and remove the upper chamber until the lower one is fully drawn-out.

Our tentative date for the installation of the bees is April 17th.  It cannot get here soon enough!
