bees tomorrow

Honey Bees

We spent a lot of time today getting ready for bees. I’ll bring home two “packages” midday tomorrow. Today we raked then positioned the boxes. We adjusted the sprinklers. I practiced “smoking” with pine cones, made a couple quarts of sugar water. I think I’m ready.

Tomorrow, I’ll pick up the packages, uncork the queen and dump in the bees. The boxes are in a good location I think. Nice morning sun. Good mid afternoon shade. Our magnolia trees have begun to bloom so the bees will like that I hope. A few crocuses, daffodils and chinodoxa are blooming too. Too bad we have a driving rain storm coming tomorrow night. The bees can stay put in their new home.
