Warre Hive - package installation
I am getting ready to install my first package this week and I need some input.
I was planning on setting up two warre hive bodies- taking the bars (or most of the bars) off the top box, then placing the queen cage on top of the bars of the bottom box. then dumping the bees on top of the queen cage, replacing the bars on the top box, and then setting the quilt and roof back on the hive.
I have seen some videos where people dump the bees in an upside down box, then flip them over. My bars are easily removable, so is my method okay?
