Installing Packages

We are getting ready to install some packages. One of these three will be installed into the box behind.

Many of our customers have requested a video demonstration on how to install a package by the shaking method. Here it is! (While you’re at it, Subscribe to our You Tube Chanel Here.)

Do not use smoke when installing the package. The smoke can confuse bee pheromones and cause drift. 
If you need to store packages, keep them in a cool, dark, quiet place. Ideally, the temperature should be between 50 and 70 degrees F. Spray light sugar syrup on the screen cage about every 4 hours. Don’t drown the bees.
