Last week we drove the 600+ miles to Patterson, Georgia to pick up bees from JJ Honey. This year we only made one trip south, while last year we did three. This was a load of 100 packages.
We can fit about 60 packages in the rear of our Explorer, but we needed to rent a trailer for the balance. The weather was cooler luckily and there were no broken screens that let bees fly in the cabin, so while loud and warm, the trip back was uneventful.
This was a particularly great load. Jerome had packaged the bees that morning and we've had no calls of dead queens in the packages.
Here is the video of Jerome packaging the bees:
