Beekeeping Bees DIY

Installing the Nucs

I woke up early yesterday morning to see how the bees had fared overnight.  They seemed to be spending the morning becoming acquainted with their new home.  I could see plenty of curious bees buzzing around the nuc boxes and hives.  I looked on as some were spiraling up into the air.  They were orienting themselves to their new location.  The sun was shining brightly and temperatures were already in the sixties.  I had to get to work.  Later this morning, I would transfer the bees from the nucs to their new hives.
