Hive Installation at Baab-Brock Farms

After a successful installation over at the Sunshine Community Gardens, it was off to Baab-Brock Farms to install the remaining package of bees.

This hive is going in the same location formally occupied by Large Marge so the new queen Rue will have Knives 2.0 as a neighbor. Here is a shot of the bees yearning to be free.

The syrup can on this package almost defeated me, but we eventually got it removed without using a chainsaw.

Here is Queen Rue in her cage. You can just see the yellow dot on her back.

Bees love getting dumped into a hive.

Another successful hive installation!

Here's to a job well done!

  1. I love the picture of your bees peering through the mesh. They look so light and golden compared to our British black bees! Good luck for springtime! 🙂

    I love the color of the box. Wish I had had time to paint some pretty pictures on my boxes before my package came.
