Not only did we have bees in the packages, but several had made their way out into the cabin of the car, creating quite a hazard. Then there were three installs in Virginia before we re-entered the District to deliver the bulk of the bees.
Of our 45 packages, I am pleased to say we were responsible for 28 new hives in the District. An excellent outcome.
Some of the highlights of our two days of installation:
- Many many stings, even with the veil. They seem to know to hit the same spot over and over again!
- Rainy cold and windy both days.
- Direct release of all our queens.
- All the queens healthy.
Next weekend we head down to Georgia ourselves to pick up some packages from the Fat Bee Man. That should be a ton of fun and daughter Kaitlin is joining me. Stay tuned for that trip!
