    Default my first question after getting my bees

    i just got home from getting my first 2 nucs .I had to drive 4 hours. i have cardboard nuc with holes in one end of box . The holes are closed with plastic plugs .The person told me to take the plugs out when I got home. Its raining out and I have put the bees in my workshop. Do these holes have screens over them.Are the bees going to be loose in my shop.

    Those holes do not have screens and bees will most likely come out and cause an uncomfortable situation. Leave the plugs in until you can let the bees out outside. That should be soon, but outside.
