I picked up 3 nuc boxes of honey bees last night. 2 for me, 1 for someone who should be picking up her bees today. Here’s a shot of the boxes and the bees close-up.
I’ll install the bees into my hives later today. I’ll document it all eventually. In the meantime, this is what the bees sound like in their boxes.
(The bees come in around the 1:00 mark.)
PHOTOS NOTE (AUGUST 2015): The photos in this post may not display properly because they were uploaded through Google’s Picasa online photo album service, a service I no longer use because certain updates created more work for me instead of streamlining the process. I will eventually replace the photos with ones hosted on the Mud Songs server. This note will disappear when (or if) that happens.
