I read a book or two, and now my bees have arrived. Time to put them into the hive. Great filming with a surprise ending.

    1:56 “He’s trying to sting me but I’m not gonna let him.”

    Do you think we ought to let this guy know that all stinging honeybees are female?

    my favorite part is when the wife tells “mary margeret”; “they fight all the time,they’ll work it out .” in regards to the kids, LOL!. nice to see a mom let kids be kids without consuling sessions and ritalin!!!

    Such honesty! Thanks for this. You read about it in books but always wonder how people do it! This has actually taught me a lot – hope you and your bees are doing well!

    I love your video. I’m taking a beekeeping course at the U of M this spring. I like that you talked through the process.

    a tip for you mate take a frame out it reduces risk of swarming in spring (more room in the hive) and your bees will draw a deeper comb anyways so your gaining honey not losing it but it is nice to see an american and also when your putting your new queen in tilt the cage on an angle with the candy up so if any of the escorts die theyre not blocking the entrance and the queen can still get out because it happens and she will take better

    A valent effort, and rather entertaining. I think though we can say this is not the best way. Still, it does perserve the cage. For those watching for information…
    1 Soak with sugar water & Remove 2 middle frames
    3 Remove a screen
    4 Tap Down & shake in
    5 Remove queen cage and candy end cork
    6 Staple queen cage tab to body or a wood frame
    7 Close Hive with syrup in top feeder
    8 Check/remove queen from cage in 3 days and add 2 missing frames to outer position
    Can hive in under 5 min

    They are doing good. I posted a video of us installing them, and then another video of us checking for the queen to see if she was released and alive. Both are posted here on youtube.

    Nice. How’s your hive going? Stay tuned. I’m going to post a video later today of my wife going into the hive sans quipment. I think I’m going to have to call it the “Bee Bickerers” because we sound like the Honeymooners.

    That was pretty cool. I just installed my first bee package this year. I use to be a Wanna-Bee, now I’m a New-Bee hehe.
