Re: ccommercial way for installing packages
Yes that's a good point. My own experience is not so much with installing packages as making them up and selling them. However when we did install package bees, we laid the package on it's side and watered them with a watering can. Each package was then given a shake to ensure all bees were wet before dumping them out. Extreme? well maybe, but I've done them dry and drifting is far worse.
