Spring Time = Bee Install

Buy Honey Bees for Delivery

For anyone who is new to beekeeping, it can be intimidating to think about installing bees into any hive. Here are a couple quick reminders from me (a novice) to make sure that your install ensures that your bees will successfully adapt to their new home.

  1. Be sure that your hive is placed where you want it. Follow guidelines that are recommended by your local beekeeping experts.
  2. Make sure you have your simple syrup made and ready to go in the hive. It’s also helpful to spray the bees down a little bit with a spray bottle. This will keep them preoccupied and make sure that they settle in nicely rather than fly.
  3. Be sure that you stay calm and show the bees love. Think about how you would feel if you moved into a new home; anxious, nervous, excited. As a unit, your bees have similar feelings. They want to make sure their queen is ok, their is food available and that it is a suitable home.

These are just a few reminders for you.
