The Bees Have Arrived!

I have spent months now studying about bees, building Warre hives, attending beekeeping meetings, and everything has culminated into todays events! The You Tube video is not the greatest as I wasn’t able to show you exactly how to install a package of bees, but I got a before and after shot.

The type of bees I got are Minnesota Hygienic. They were bred by Dr. Marla Spivak for their hygienic behavior which helps in combating the varroa mite.
