We just got home with our package of honeybees. They were so quiet all the way home. I kept anticipating driving home with these loud humming bees and wondering how that would feel but they weren't humming at all. Once we got home they started to get a little more active and hummed a bit. I sprayed them with some light sugar as instructed by natures nectar and they immediately quieted down. I was told not to hive them until around 5 pm. I think Jim told me to spray them every half hour? Does that sound right?
