I think I screwed the pooch
Well Tuesday I received my first package of bees.I installed them in a 5 over 5 nuc box. with feed bottles on top. The install went fine one sting with no suit and not much smoke. Well we had a huge storm on Wednesday night we had 6+ inches of rain over night and the queen and was drenched. overnight temps in the lower 40's. I rescued them and drought them in the house and switched them out in a dry lower box. the top was where they where clustered leaving the caged queen on top of the lower frames. she was moving but was sluggish. I am just hoping for the best now.
