Back From Visiting Don aka FatBeeMan

We picked up forty-five packages from Don on the on the 17th of March, and made many DC beekeepers have with their new small-cell bees.

Daughter Kaitlin and Don
Don is always a wealth of knowledge so I always remember to bring my video camera to capture the wisdom and the moment.  Here is the vid we took which shows Don doing an installation into one of his own nucs, and then our installations.  When we did ours, the weather was unseasonably cold and we were concerned that the girls might not survive.  But we checked today and all are doing great!

We are headed down to his homestead again with another load of bees, for pickup April 16.  Let us know if you want any!
