    Default First Hive

    Well I finished my new hive and it is ready for the girls in a couple of weeks. My kids put the finishing touches on the hive and even put a new IPM system on it. Not sure if it will work but anything is worth a try. My kids are so excited and honestly so am I.

    Very nice especially having the kids involved. The day you pick up your bees will be one you will all remember.
    Try living life with the attitude it's not about what you want to do but what you should do!

    Nice paint job.
    I suggest you record everything you do. Cameras, written details, etc. You only do first once.
    Enjoy.

    Thanks for the replies MDS and Laurence and all the artistic work was done by my kids. What would we do without Sharpies ? LOL When we go pick up the bees on April 7th the whole family is going to go. I bought an extra bee suit so my wife and kids can get involved and help out. I'm pretty sure on this first go around (installing the package) it is only going to be me dealing with the bees. Don't want any unecessary excitement and possibly disturbing the bees. Thank you for the suggestion Laurence on the cameras and written details. That will keep my kids busy while I'm showing my bees their new home plus it will be a great lessons learned tool.

    Thanks again and take care,
    Steve

    Just checked my hives 8 days after installing my package and I feel everything is going great. Comments are welcome. Bees are very cool creatures. I see that there are eggs and some older larva already. I can't beleive it. 100_0515.jpg100_0519.jpg
