It has been a number of years since I have installed a “package” of honeybees. But this winter we suffered heavy losses in the apiary, so it is time to get some fresh bees into the yard.
I ordered a 3 lb. package from Chris and Vanessa Rogers at Backwoods Bee Farm in Windham. Good folks who brought about 300 packages into Maine this spring.
Below are images from my install this year.
If you are looking for a good video on the process, here you go.
