    Re: I think my first bees are succeeding...

    I doubt they came with the bees, they can fly miles and can smell a hive from great distances. Mites on the other hand do come with the bees.

    Re: Bumble Bee Swarms

    My guess is someone uninformed sees bees coming and going from his shed, instantly comes to the conclusion bees are swarming in his shed and calls to report said swarm.

    Re: Walking Bees

    Wings are fine, it is like they have never tried to fly before and just can't get lift off. Does it take them a bit to learn to fly or warm up the wing muscles?

    "imo" I believe that is the most relivant part of the posts. They are opinions and should be treated as such. There are as many opinions as there are beekeepers.

    I also believe that when they mean before the nectar flow they also mean, if you are planning on taking honey off the hive for human consumption. As they are a new package you are probably not...
