I think I have mentioned that my brother Ben is taking on some bee responsibilities in the Metro NYC area (especially Connecticut) as our new expansion area for the Georgetown Honeybee Company. To establish a beach head we ran a Zozi promotion to get the word out. We got eight hits on our urban beekeeping promotion. However some are a little unclear about a trade area, and we ended up WAY outside NYC metro, logging in 370 miles over 12 hours of installations on a Sunday.
I started by meeting Ben in Brooklyn on Saturday evening for our first install...grabbing a well-deserved local brew while I waited for Ben to fight traffic to get in. I had a bunch of equipment in the car to suppliment the stuff I had delivered to Ben directly. Ben had picked up the night before 10 packages from famed NYC beekeeper Andrew Cote for our supply.

Most importantly, Ben did his first install. The bees must of smelled his fear has he got nine stings even with his veil. check out the installs here:
