Re: g) How do you install a package?
I put my 2 in as follows...
1. pull queen cage and place candy side up between 2 frames
2. mist bees with water, remove syrup can, and shake bees in
3. close the hive
4. place shipping cage on ground in front of hive
5. walk away
I was nervous I reckon when I did it so I forgot to remove any of the frames like suggested here and in the books I've read. It took about as long to wait for them to go down into the frames as I guess it would for you to carefully put those removed frames back in. If I ever buy packages again I'll probably do it the same way.
